Innsbruck Attractions: Our Mistake Was Crystal Clear

Frommer's awards three stars to Swarovski Kristallwelten (Crystal Worlds), a major display in a village about 12 kilometers from Innsbruck.

As part of our Innsbruck Card, we could ride the special shuttle there and be admitted. We shouldn't have bothered.

It's hard to describe it exactly but it consisted of a series of rooms containing somewhat modern works of arts and crafts. There was nothing at all about the history of crystals, their manufacture, or the company itself. Perhaps the highlight of the exhibit is this fellow at the entrance.

Brian thinks it depicts a tourist's reaction to the time and money wasted on this tourist attraction.
