The most famous crystal show in Austria
In a nutshell
This is the restaurant/bistro/cafe at the Swarovski Crystal Worlds. I really expected much more, so it was kind of a let-down, although I can´t complain about the food.
Favorite Dish: I had a tuna-salad sandwich with the crusts cut off (good for tuna salad...had some chi-chi name I don´t remember) and a piece of raspberry-yogurt cake (I´ve had better cake, but I´ve also had worse...).

A Shuttle bus runs from Innsbruck to Swarovski Crystal World (and back again!) every 2 hours. The bus is free if you have an Innsbruck card (as is entrance to Kristallwelten). The bus goes from both the main train station (Hauptbahnhof) and Museumstrasse in Innsbruck and the journey takes just under 30 minutes.

An underground tour through uninteresting laser installations and crystal boredom. You will see some nice crystal arts by Keith Haring or Niki de Saint Phalle at the beginning but that's about the only interesting part of this place. Oh wait no, the toilets were very stylish, too ;) Apart from that there's a crystal room, lots of laser crap, crystal dresses and costumes and a half-interesting room designed by Brian Eno.
Prices in the shop (yes, there is a shop. Probably the main reason for creating this place!) are not lower than in "normal" shops.
Outside there's a little park with a labyrinth. We were looking forward to it because we thought it would be nicer outside than inside. But it wasn't. It was boring!
Unique Suggestions: Run away! As fast as you can!
Fun Alternatives: Go hiking! After all you're in the alps. Who wants to see computer installations in a wonderful landscape like this.
Or spend the day in the beautiful town of Hall instead! It's very close to Wattens where the Kristallwelten are.
