An ancient town by the river Inn
The little town of Rattenberg is located just 10 minutes away from Jenbach by car, sandwiched between a castle potruding from the cliffs and the Inn. The medieval castle overhanging the roofs of the town dates back to the 10th century.
Narrow alleys, colourful facades, towers and a medieval fortress convey the impression of a picturesque and a well-preserved historical town, which was first mentioned in historical documents back in 1254.
Founded by Daniel Swarovski in the Austrian village of Wattens in 1895, Swarovski has become the world's leading manufacturer of precision-cut crystal. And today, more than 110 years on, Swarovski remains a family-run enterprise under the management of Daniel Swarovski's fourth and fifth generation descendants.
For the Swarovski World of Crystal, multimedia artist André Heller designed 14 subterranean Chambers of Wonder, which are dedicated to the various artistic interpretations of crystal. The result is a universe of discoveries and a place which cannot be experienced twice in the same way.
The Giant entices visitors all year round with an event and leisure programme which offers great variety. The sparkling shopping landscape, the Crystal Stage, unites all the Swarowski product worlds in a single room. In Café Terra, visitors can treat themselves to the culinary delights of both international and seasonal dishes. There is plenty to enjoy above ground too, where around the head of the Giant a spacious park landscape full of surprises unfolds. A unique attraction in Tyrol is awaiting you...
