EXPANSION OF SWAROVSKI KRISTALLWELTEN: CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN IN OCTOBER
Swarovski Kristallwelten (Swarovski Crystal Worlds), one of Austria’s most successful attractions, is to undergo a major expansion starting in October, with a total investment of 34 million euros. Based on the current date for the start of construction, over the next 18 months, the total area of the site will more than double, from 3.5 hectares at present to 7.5 hectares. Opening is slated for early summer 2015.
The main focus of the expansion will be a crystalline park landscape, expansion of offers for families and children, new dining experiences, and remodeling of the entrance hall and shopping area. Swarovski Crystal Worlds’ iconic Giant will also undergo changes, and starting in 2015, will entice visitors with new Chambers of Wonder.
