German Watch Museum Glashütte
For 170 years, Glashütte has been an important centre of the art of watchmaking. After the reunification of Germany, Glashütte has once again become a by-word for the highest quality, precision and excellence. With its development, the small Saxon town has become an exciting arena of German economic history. Not far from Weesenstein Castle, Glashütte presents itself as a dynamic watchmaking town. Several famous manufactories as well as the German Watch Museum Glashütte are open to the public today. In line with the exhibition’s motto “The Fascination of Time – Bringing Time to Life”, the museum illuminates not only the fine art of watchmaking, but also facilitates an emotional and philosophical access to the phenomenon of time itself. As a modern and experience-orientated time-world, the museum is designed to appeal not only to watch enthusiasts but is also orientated towards visitors who are keen to learn more about the rich history of this region.
