The Basics

Inside the Chambers of Wonder are 16 separate installations, each built using Swarovski crystals and designed by a different artist. The verdant garden also has crystal displays including the vast Crystal Cloud, as well as a hedge maze and a playground.

Private Tour: Innsbruck and Swarovski Crystal Worlds from Salzburg
Our guide, Peter, was exceptional! We truly appreciated his extraordinary customer-focused service and his friendly and respectful demeanor. Peter went out of his way to make sure that he accommodated my son's and my itinerary requests by strategically planning the sequence of site visitations to maximize our experience in Innsbruck and at the Swarovski Crystal Worlds. I especially appreciated and valued the depth of Peter's knowledge of the people and history of the regions and sites we visited - I learned so much from this tour! Thanks to Peter, our trip to Innsbruck was absolutely enjoyable, educational, memorable and just plain AWESOME! I would whole heartedly recommend this tour - with Peter as its guide - to my family and friends!

Summer is also a good time to come, with extended opening hours and a Summer Festival program that includes open-air yoga classes, outdoor movie screenings, and other special events.
