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. 


In the art spaces inside the Kristallwelten Stores in Wattens and Innsbruck, Marcel van Doorn stages nostalgic yet surprising winter motifs, such as a playful take on a gingerbread house under the title “Frozen Dreams”. At the two Tyrolean Swarovski Kristallwelten Stores, visitors will find souvenirs and Christmas gifts from an extensive range of jewelry, figurines, and decorations.

Please note: Due to the decision of the Austrian Federal Government as a precautionary measure to contain the further spread of COVID-19, the playtower as well as Carousel and our restaurant Daniels Kristallwelten are closed.
