During a visit to the Swarovski Kristallwelten (Crystal Worlds) as part of an InstaWeekend I also learned a lot of interesting things about Swarovski’s activities as Official Supplier & Presenting Partner of the FIS Nordic World Ski WM in Seefeld. This was my first visit to a nordic ski event and thanks to a binocular from Swarovski Optik, to which one could also attach one’s smartphone for photographing and filming, we were very close. And it was fun to see every single Norwegian either dancing or drunk – that’s how successful our friends from Norway were,

and our get-together trip to the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2019 in Seefeld

Wattens, Innsbruck & Saalfelden – March, 2019

My trip to Tyrol took me via Innsbruck to Wattens where you can find one of the most popular tourist attractions in Austria: the Swarovski Crystal Worlds, a glittering paradise of sparkling crystal glass for which the Swarovski brand is internationally renowned. It is a unique art and adventure park and was created by multimedia artist André Heller to mark the company’s 100th anniversary. This extraordinary place of fantasy, art and play has since become an indispensable part of the beautiful Inn Valley in Tyrol.

Some impressions from Hall in Tirol

In this magnificent place I stayed at the Parkhotel Hall in Tirol. I have been there for the second time and I had a very comfy room in the tower with a splendid view over the Inn valley.

In the context of a get-together of friends I was allowed to visit the “all empty” Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens and learn exciting things about the activities as Official Supplier and Presenting Partner of the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2019 and the cooperation with the renewable material company Stora Enso.

The chamber “Transparent Opacity”

by Arik Levy

The chamber “Transparent Opacity” by Arik Levy is one of 17 and an homage to the diversity of crystal. The title of this work already embraces both of its apparently contradictory aspects: its transparency and its impenetrability.

Our visit to Seefeld in Tirol for the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2019

Nearly 160 prizes of honour from Swarovski Kristallwelten & Stora Enso


Swarovski Kristallwelten (Crystal Worlds)

The Swarovski Kristallwelten are a museum in Wattens, Austria. The museum was established in 1995 on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Austrian crystal company Swarovski, which was founded in 1895 by Daniel Swarovski. A century later, the multimedia artist Andre Heller was commissioned to design the museum with fourteen chambers. The museum already has 17 chambers, each of which was designed by different artists. The museum is open all year round.

FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2019

Around 200,000 Swarovski crystals have made the Medal Plaza in Seefeld, where all the prizes were presented, sparkle. The Swarovski Crystal Worlds as Official Supplier, together with Presenting Partner Stora Enso, created the traditional prize of honour. In stylised form, the trophy made of light wood shows the Seefeld mountain backdrop, in the middle of which a Swarovski Chaton with special steaming in the colours gold, silver or bronze rests.
