Glassware has always been manufactured in Poschinger’s glass factory, based in Frauenau in the Bavarian Forest. The company was founded in 1568 and is therefore the oldest glass factory in Germany and the oldest in the world.
In glass manufacturing, one can experience the manufacture and refinement of mouth-blown and hand-made glasses. In the historic glass factory of the Poschinger glass factory in Frauenau in the Bavarian Forest, a craftsmanship tradition of four and a half centuries is exhibited. Here an ancient craftsmanship is practiced.
Since 2001, the manufactory has had a Europe-wide unique feature, when the glass manufacturer changed to the supplier for special and special products.
In addition to its own glass collection, which has been offering the range for centuries, the glass manufacturer offers a solution for almost every glass problem – from the reproduction of historical pieces, lighting components, objects for architects, trophies and clock falls to prototype production and special solutions in flat glass.
The customer can choose from a wide range of glass colors. Produced from one piece, but of course also small and large series can be commissioned. Each production step is carried out by hand, so that each glass, whether as a serial or individual piece, leaves the glassworks as unique.
Guided tours through the glass factory in Frauenau are also offered, where the visitors can even blow a glass ball. In former factory halls, cultural events take place and Poschinger glass manufactory also operates outside of pure production with a sculpture park as well as workshops for glass artists.
