The European Museum of Flacon-Glass
Glass-Production in the Franconian Forest
The European Museum of Flacon-Glass invites its visitors to join a journey through 5,000 years of glass history. Your trip starts in Mesopotamia, today's Iraq, where allegedly the artificial production of glass had been discovered in about 3,000 BC. From there, the knowledge of glass production spread to Egypt. Some of these very old flacons can be admired in the museum.
Glass production has a long tradition in the Franconian Forrest: In 1661 glass-makers came from Thuringia and founded Kleintettau's first Glass Factory to produce Flacon-Glass! The museum provides, which is unique in the world of museums, an insight into ultra-modern glass production.
