 They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but have you ever been dazzled by crystals? The sparkles at the Swarovski Museum made me feel like royalty, and it was the perfect birthday present ever from me to me. I met up with my friend and an Egyptian Travel Creator, Amal, to share this incredible moment with.

 We took a train heading to Kristallwelten Wattens and had a burger on the way, which was not the most delicious, but Amal relished it. But we aren’t here to talk about burgers today. Once we alighted from the train, we sported the Swarovski Kristallwelten museum a short throw away, and I squealed like an excited teenager.

The moment we stepped into the museum, I was transported to a world of glittering wonder and instantly understood why it was called the Chambers of Wonder. Like something straight out of a Disney movie, the calm and soothing music filled the air with surround sound, making the experience even more memorable. The acoustics were so perfect that I could have sworn I could hear the crystals chiming in harmony. We also made a stop at the flagship store and swooned over the exotic crystal collections.

 The Swarovski Museum is a celebration of all things Swarovski. Founded in 1895 by Daniel Swarovski, the company is world-renowned for its high-quality crystals and exquisite craftsmanship. The museum itself is a dazzling display of the brand’s heritage and creativity. Swarovski Crystal Worlds was launched in 1995 to mark the centennial anniversary of the company’s founding.

It is the creative masterpiece of  Multimedia Artist Andre Heller, who designed this phenomenal and spellbinding haven. The Museum transcends a collection of pretty crystals; it is a journey through time, weaving the history of the company and its founder. We learned about Swarovski’s innovative cutting techniques, which have revolutionised the crystal industry. We also saw how the company has collaborated with globally recognised designers to create stunning pieces of art and jewelry such as James Turell and Manish Arora.

 The shimmering and sparkling water by the garden was nothing but soothing. I felt a sense of tranquillity like never before, and if left to my devices, I would have fallen asleep to the aquatic melody blanketed by the crystal clouds. And beyond the rippling of the water was a delightful background music. I don’t know how they did it, but the combination of water and acoustics is something magical.

The highlight of our visit was seeing the incredible crystal creations on display. From sparkling chandeliers to mystical sculptures, there’s something to amaze everyone, including the company’s most famous pieces: the world’s largest crystal chandelier and a crystal replica of the Eiffel Tower. Each room we visited had a peculiar smell that would evoke memories for years to come.

 If you are looking for a truly unique and unforgettable experience in Austria, then add this to your list of “things to do in Austria” because the Swarovski Museum is worth visiting. It is a place where you can learn about the history of crystal, marvel at stunning works of art, and maybe even find the perfect piece of sparkle to add to your collection!
