Swarovski Crystal Worlds (Kristallwelten)

The famous Swarovski Crystal works was founded in 1895. In 1995, to mark the centenary of its foundation, a park and museum were created. It was designed by Andre Heller, working with Brian Eno, Susanne Schmogner and Studio Azurro. Outdoors, the chief feature is the head of an Alpine Giant. He has crystal eyes and spouts water, like a flowing tongue, into a fountain pool. The maze is a replica of the artist's hand.
