Journey Through Time At Glashütte's German Watch Museum

German Watch Museum.
Located near Dresden, the town of Glashütte is a popular weekend attraction for those travelling to Sächsische Schweiz (Saxon Switzerland). A relatively sleepy German town, Glashütte becomes a hive of industry during the week as the home base for Germany’s watc-hmaking industry (employing over 2,000 people), housing several luxury brands such as Tourneau, Swatch, and Glashütte Original. If not for the retail prospects, Glashütte is a worthwhile stopover for design aficionados as the site of the German Watch Museum. Here, visitors can learn about everything from watch-making techniques to the personalities involved in bringing this intricate craft to an otherwise quiet location. 

We visited the museum when I was recently in Dresden for the Dresden Music Festival. Find out more in my article on
