Glass Blowing in the Black Forest

Glass Blowing in the Black Forest

Want to create a one-of-a-kind gift for your loved ones for the holidays? How about a glass vase that you can make yourself with the help of an expert artisan?

Dorotheenhütte Glashütte Wolfach, located less than 2 hours away from Stuttgart, is a must-see when in the Black Forest. They offer a free glass-blowing workshop where a visitor is given one-on-one instruction on blowing a beautiful piece of glass art in the form of a so-called “Blautze”, the blank glass.

But that is not all that this wonderful glass haven offers. The Glass Museum offers an insight into the rich history and evolution of glass-making. The huge store, sectioned into two areas, Christmas Village and Glass Paradise, sells an extensive array of holiday and non-seasonal glass pieces, from home decor to wine goblets and so much more! Local food products and other handcrafted items, even WMF cookware, are also available in the store.
