Parents and children alike can get insight into the art of making glass in an entire museum village in the district of Teltow-Fläming.
The museum village Baruther Glashütte turns 300 years of history into a hands-on experience. The highlight is the making of glass where the visitors can look over the shoulder of master glass maker Patrick Damm. And if you are adventurous, you can try your luck at blowing a "Glashütter Durstkugel", a local kind of bottle.
Top10 Team Insiders' tip: the glassworks and the museum are worth a visit all year round. In spring go there to visit the market for pottery and gardening, summertime invites you for the garden and summer night fest, autumn brings the wine fest and in winter you have to check out their christmas market for a special gift made of glass. Glashütte is also a nice place for a great Christmas function.
