This fantastic watch museum should be on every watch lover's list of things to do in Germany. They do a great job of sharing the development of the watch industry in Glashutte. In addition, the watches and displays are highly interesting and skillfully constructed. The audio tour helped a lot. Two hours would be enough time for most folks to... More

This museum is very attractive, not only for the incredible number of precious hand-made watches, especially the gentlemen's pocket ones made in the 19th century, but what you will surely appreciate too is the clever l way of exhibiting them and the accompanying detailed info in German and English. The exhibition is relatively new (2008) and it is very tastefully... More

Glashütte is a tiny community only minutes away from the magnificent Basteigebiet or the City of Dresden in the free state of Saxony, Germany. It is nevertheless the home of meticulous German watch crafting. A few world leaders in watchmaking are cradled hear and the town's watch museum is telling their stories. It is definitely a "do not miss!” for... More

This is one of the most incredible collections of watch and Horology history. I spent an incredible day just simply immersing myself in the German Watch History and marveling at the incredible pieces, but also the way in which Glashütte and the surrounding towns "grew up" with time. A must for all watch fans.

This fantastic museum is located in Glashutte, Germany, home of two of the finest watch manufacturers in that country, A Lange und Sohne and Glashutte Original. This museum nicely covers the history of both those watch manufacturers. It is a bit out of the way, about a 45 minute drive from Dresden. While you are there, tour both of the... More

If you are a watch collector this place is definitely well worth a visit. I was hoping to get a tour of one of the many watchmakers in the town but was unable to get one that fit our schedule; however, this museum more than made up for it.

This is probably one of my favorite museums. It is located in Glasshutte, a very quaint town near Dresden. The museum seemed fairly new and had an extensive museum upstairs, chronically the German watch industry since the early 1850s. Very cool interactive exhibit near the end of the visit. Many watch shops near the Museum for shopping!
