Five centuries ago, a few nomadic glass-blowers built a makeshift kiln in a rugged valley of the Northern Vosges. These pioneers were to be the very first in the extraordinary industrial and artistic adventure which continues today. Nestling in adjacent valleys, 3 exceptional sites have undertaken to make their sagas known in the very places in which they came into being...
A unique opportunity to discover the magic of a cultural, natural inheritance preserved by the dedication of men.
Opened in 2011, the Lalique Museum is located in the village of Wingen-sur-Moder where René Lalique founded a factory in 1921. In a building which combines ancient and contemporary architecture of the Wilmotte agency project, more than 650 works illustrate the exceptional work of René Lalique and his successors. With the videos and large-format photographs, enjoy the atmosphere and expertise which is still perpetuated by the glass-makers of today.
