In the GlazenHuis (Vlaams Centrum voor Hedendaagse Glaskunst/ Flemish Centre for Contemporary Glass Art), you can discover glass from various perspectives: artistic, functional, as well as traditional-industrial, contemporary and historic.
Every year, GlazenHuis organises two unique exhibitions. The building is a stunning example of good architecture. Here space, art and the production of art are beautifully blended. The 30-metre tall glass cone towers above Lommel. A climb to the top will give you a splendid reward: a unique panorama of Lommel, where sand and glass are at home.
Did you know that... the glass furnace in the glassblowing studio is constantly at a temperature of over 1100 degrees Celsius? You can also take on the challenge of the hot, fluid glass yourself.
Would you like to take home a keepsake? The Glass Shop offers a wide range of traditionally blown glassware: from souvenirs and trophies to true works of art.
The GlazenHuis offers a variety of workshops. You can make your own glass artwork under the professional guidance of the experienced glassblowers; a creative activity for young and old.
