Industrial Heritage Baruther Glashütte
Glass - History - Craftsmanship - Art - Sports - Recreation
The Baruth glassworks were founded in 1716. Until 1980, glassblowers produced lampshades and bottles. Today, the ensemble of factory buildings and workers’ dwellings is a monument that conveys the spirit of the 19th century.
In the museum the visitors can experience the manufacturing of glass. The glassblower offers the opportunity to try it oneself, e.g. to blow a glass globe. The furnace is to become a forum for artists, too.
The expositions cover the history of the location and aspects of industrial culture and glass design. Special expositions make a repeat visit worthwhile. The former cutting shop focuses on the history of the thermos bottle. The inventor of the vacuum flask, Reinhold Burger, was born in Glashütte and contributed to technological progress in many ways.
The art gallery shows expositions of contemporary art of the Berlin- Brandenburg region. Craftsmen and craftswomen have established little shops all over the former industrial settlement.
Pedagogical programs include guided tours of the museum and nature area. Pottery, textile, and herb workshops offer creative manual activity.
Festivities, expositions, and lectures are held throughout the year in the museum park. The Christmas market on the first Advent weekend and the children’s festival in August are only a few of the highlights.
The historical factory inn has become the gastronomical center of the site once again. Today, the historical school is a family hotel with a naturally cleansed swimming pool.
The Glashütte monument is an ideal base for excursions in the vicinity, either by foot or with inline skates. A new skating course from Klasdorf train station to the museum village enables inline skaters to spend the day in sport activity.
