Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Swarovski Crystal Worlds and Innsbruck Day Trip from Munich. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We were expecting an insight into how Swarovski is made and we thought the museum would be a display of all the retired pieces from years ago so in that aspect, it was disappointing. I think everyone on the bus loved the store as we all came away carrying a Swarovski bag. I loved the fact that you could pay in your home currency. We then enjoyed a pleasant wander around in Innsbruck.
It was some thing you have to see, a pity there was so many people
The Swarovski World of Crystal is a tourist trap and a rip-off. It costs an additional 7.50 euros for the 'museum' which leads to a gift shop. Personally, I could have done without Swarovski World of Crytstal. Innsbruck was definitely worth doing. It has charming but small old town. The guide directed me to the tourist office in Innsbruck. The tourist office was most helpful and suggested, I take the new Nordpark railway up the mountain, which I did. As I had packed my lunch, I had time to walk around the old town and go up the mountain. There are an abundant amount of restaurants in Innsbruck, if you need a place to eat. It is a lovely town. In Innsbruck a trip to the tourist office is essential, if you are interested in more than just shopping and eating at a restaurant.
The tour was great. The only thing Viator needs to put on our vouchers is where we were going. Ours only had a picture, and some of the tour guides were very confused by this.
Would like to visit the Innsbruck area again. Treated to the first snow of the season on the mountain tops.
I should have known the Swarovski Crystal World museum would be a joke but I didn't expect it to be that terrible.. they do have a great deal on the prices with the buy 2 get 1 free so... worth it for that.. but you don't get that much time for shopping and the people there are sooooooo busy they didn't even have time to do gift wrapping for me they just gave me the packaging and reqeuested I do it later.
Innsbruck is a quaint town.. you could say a tiny version of Salzburg but the river Inn was a spectacular blue! Good to check out if you have spare time...
The guide was a gentleman I really enjoyed the information he shared.
Great tour, time is extremely limited. If you are not on time with the free time they give you, you will be left.
Swarovski Crystal Worlds tour was very iffy...and they ask for another 10 euros on the bus to visit sideshow museum...no actually visit to Crystal Works
The Swarovski Crystal Worlds was a disappointment. It was a bunch of artists ideas about different concepts that really had little to do about crystals. Was hoping to see something about the manufacturing process but there was nothing. The Swarovski sales floor was very nice but due to our guides poor administration we had restricted time. We got a late start since we had to wait 30 minutes for hotel pickup buses to arrive. Then at Swarovski the guide took forever to get the tickets and then passed out German Guide Pamphlets and then took forever to get the English ones so that we could enter the exhibit thus limiting our time. Innsbruck made the trip worthwhile. It was beautiful and the food and shopping was great. Also the scenery along the bus trip was outstanding.
The Swarovski Crystal Worlds didn't interest me too much, their shop was much better than their museum. I give the Swarovski Crystal Worlds portion of this tour a 1 star only. The city of Innsbruck was much better as a whole.
As a tour it was great but I hate it when the guide and driver ask for compensation at the end of the trip as if we did not pay enough for their services!!
