Some make the pilgrimage from far and wide to see the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the leaning tower in Pisa…Us? We go to beader’s mecca – Swarovski’s Crystal World in Wattens, Austria!Opened in 1995 to celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary, Crystal World consists of 14 different exhibition rooms to showcase the art and form of crystal in all its unique glory. You are greeted outside the museum by the Crystal Giant, who welcomes you into his world below filled with art showcasing our favorite material: Crystal!

The Entrance Hall includes crystal art work from artists such as Salvador Dali and Keith Haring, and it also showcases the largest crystal ever cut! It’s a 310,000 carat crystal called the Centenar. Gorgeous!My favorite room by far was the Crystal Dome, where you feel like you’ve stepped inside a crystal with 590 facets surrounding you! Our guide said you could even get married in this room! Can you imagine a crystal wedding?
