In the recently opened Chamber of Wonder Silent Light, Swarovski Crystal Worlds guarantees a white Christmas all year round and creates moments of wonder for its visitors throughout the winter with countless sparkling crystals.
Designer Tord Boontje designed an icy winter landscape around the Silent Light crystal tree with indoor snow –manufactured by the South Tyrolean company TechnoAlpin – that is unique in the world.
The contrast of multifaceted crystal in dark spaces makes for a wintery mood in multiple Chambers of Wonder: from the crackling soundscape in the Ice Passage by the Tyrolean Oliver Irschitz, to the exploration of infinity in "Chandelier of Grief" by Yayoi Kusama, or the warming solar installation El Sol designed by Fernando Romero.
Winter wonderland in the garden
Irrespective of the snow forecast, winter magic will permeate the expansive garden at Swarovski Crystal Worlds at beginning of December. The 13-meter high Christmas tree welcomes visitors with a sparkling Christmas ornament at the top. A giant sled with space for presents and a popular spot for taking pictures will be available at the Grand Plaza.
In the garden, Tord Boontje’s luminous animal figures add to the fairy-tale mood. Right next to the maze, the Carousel’s 15 million crystals shine particularly bright in the winter twilight. This piece of art continues to turn all winter, whisking even adults back to a time when the Advent season was characterized by childlike anticipation.
A wintry feast for the palate
It is always worth dining at the wonderful award-winning Daniels Kristallwelten for its special winter menu. Walking past the Christmas tree, not only can you enjoy a spectacular view of the Crystal Cloud, you can also savor the fine mélange of regional and international delicacies made from the best ingredients.
