    Swarovski Crystal: World Famous Crystals

    by machomikemd Updated Nov 25, 2015

    this will be my shopping tips of the Swarovski Crystal Store in Herzog Friedrich Strasse in Innsbruck (they actually have two outlets, a larger one and a smaller one).

    Unless you are living under a rock for ages, you would know that Swarovski is a world known brand of Crystals and their main factory and headquarters is at Watens, which is just 20 kilometers east of Innsbruck near Autobahn 12. The company is an Austrian producer of cut lead glass and optical items such as telescopes and cameras but is more well known for their luxury crystals and designer items as well. The company was founded by a Czech Daniel Swarovski in 1895 an since then makes those fabulously luxe items such as the famed cystals.

    They have a large branch and showroom in Innbruck along Herzog Friedrich Strasse, near the Golden Roof of which is 5 levels of retail space devoted to anything about crystals such as crystal necklaces, crystal vases, crystal chandeliers, crystal panels and a lot more.

    opens: 9:00 am to 7:30 pm everyday

    What to buy: what else but all the Swarovski crystals in various makes and configuraions like Swarovski tables, bangles, jewelries, chairs, pendants and a lot more.

    they give you a discount coupon of 10% for selected items when you enter inside the huge store cum showroom.

    What to pay: maxx out your credit card

    Swarovski Crystal: it's free to look

    As Swarovski stores become part of the chain store globalization that encompasses the world, it’s not something I would normally seek out. To be honest, I didn’t know much of anything about it aside from it was crystal and fairly expensive at that for what’d call cut class. I was, however, traveling with my sister and she was interested in getting something for her daughter on the trip. My wife wanted to check it out and since it was conveniently right on the main shopping street in Innsbruck, it was worth a peek.
    Daniel Swarovski was a Czech Jew who patented a cutting edge process for cutting glass into crystal in 1892 and with the help of financiers opened a crystal company in Wattens, Austria to take advantage of the hydroelectric power there. It has grown to become perhaps the most famous crystal producer in the world. There are shops in numerous big cities and Innsbruck’s is considered its flagship store. It’s certainly a nice shop to walk around and has a bit of a museum atmosphere with numerous stunning displays.

    Swarovski Crystal: WINTER WONDERLAND

    This Swarvoski shop is well worth a visit. The winter wonderland is full of sparkling crystals. The jewellery and trinkets are beautiful and although most of the things are expensive, they do have some competitive priced items

    What to buy: Earrings are a good buy.

    The swarosky shop is fantastic. On the ground floor you can see some beautiful sculptures realized with crystal Swarosky, while on the first floor there is the shop with the whole Swarosky production. It is very beautiful!!!

    Swarovski Crystal: great souvenirs for all Swarovski - fans

    by globetrott Updated May 19, 2005

    Swarovski Crystal has its origin in Tyrol and here in Innsbruck you may buy their jewelery in one of their shops in the pedestrian zone, not far from Hotel Weisses Kreuz and the Citytower.

    What to buy: I have to say I am personally not a real big fan of Swarowski Crystal, but in this shop you may find quite a lot of unique works of art, like the vase on my picture.

    What to pay: This is certainly not a cheap store, but I am sure Swarovski-fans will have an idea about their prices.

    THE SWAROVSKI STORE: Swarovski crystal

    If you did not listen to what I had said about the Swarovski Museum then here is a place that will make up for the let down of the Swarovski Museum.

    You can see just about every piece of Swarovski that is currently for sale here and there is more here than in the Swarovski Museum and every piece is for SALE so look out.

    The sales staff is very helpful and speak just about any language you can throw at them. Try it..

    GESHENKSLAUB'N: Swarovski Crystal

    by Rhondaj Updated Aug 31, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If shopping for SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL, don't bother with their main store in the old city. The sales persons there are rather snotty. A few doors down at a shop called GESHENKSLAUB'N, a very kind woman by the name of Ursula assisted me. She gave me a great product catalogue to take home to the states. (not some little flyer) Ursula said that Swarovski sets prices for their pieces and no matter what store you shop in the prices will be the same. (I kept my eye out for that afterwards and it seemed true.)

    What to buy: Some pieces are not exported for a while so I always ask what they have that is not available in the states.

    What to pay: from 30 euros on up
