Souvenir Shopping At The Swarovski Store In Innsbruck

Okay, clearly I’m joking. I believe everything within the Swarovski store in Innsbruck exceeds our €10 souvenir budget by just a little bit. But hey, it’s still fun to browse! Although Swarovski Crystal Worlds, the company’s headquarters, is more popular with tourists, with its unique exhibits and a wide range of crystal products on display, Swarovski’s flagship store in Innsbruck has become an attraction worth visiting, too.

Located right in the middle of Old Town, the Innsbruck Swarovski store is one of the largest in the world. Before we even entered the store, we could tell this place was one-of-a-kind. (A quirky, insect-themed art exhibit is certainly one way to make your products memorable!) Once inside, design elements like the shimmering crystal chandelier, gracefully cascading down two entire floors, and the crystal bubble staircases created the perfect atmosphere for luxury shopping.

As we walked through, admiring all the shiny trinkets we knew we weren’t going to purchase, I was reminded of those days in childhood when my sister and I would flip through the pages of catalogs that came in the mail. We’d pick our favorites on each page, knowing full well our mother would never buy them for us. It was an early version of window shopping, I suppose. I’ve grown quite accustomed to only window shopping now. Everything good is always out of my price range!

Originally just a way to kill some time before we headed to the airport, we ended up enjoying our experience at the Swarovski store even more than we thought we would. Lexie most of all – she adores anything colorful and shiny! There are all sorts of objects to look at here – jewelry, accessories, beauty products, home goods, crystal-encrusted figurines – and they come in all price ranges, as well. (If you’ve got a spare €20,000, you can take home the crystal-studded tiger pictured above. Anyone interested?) The store is open daily, and they have a very friendly staff available to help if you’re actually there to purchase something, unlike us who were there to, er…take pictures?

    I love strolling through swarovski stores, the figurines are so pretty. I’ve got some earrings from them, and half the crystals fell out. So safe to say from now on I will only be looking and not purchasing.

      What a disappointment! :( I’m so sorry. Besides my engagement ring, I don’t own any nice jewelry because I’m afraid of messing it up. I’m not exactly delicate with my things. :)

        yeah, when I took them back the lady accused me of spraying perfume on them, as if I spray perfume on my ears? haha. I wear the crap out of stuff, but for the price you’d expect them to at least last a year! I still wear them, but I’d like them more if they had all their stones.

    Beautiful photos! I’ve been to Crystal Worlds–it was really something. So beautiful, and so very very sparkly. haha :) I didn’t buy anything either… shiny, blingy things make me nervous and self-conscious ;)

    There was a small Swarovski shop in Prague. I always enjoyed window shopping! Never even stepped inside, I knew it was way out of my price range! ;)

    Oh wow, there is definitely a lot to look at! Unfortunately the Tiger is out of my price range but he definitely looks impressive. My godfather’s wife has some smaller figures and I loved to play with them as a kid. And I even managed not to break them.

    The crystal staircases and chandeliers are quite something! Looks like quite the store to visit in Innsbruck :-). We have some sweet Swarovski pieces in our china cabinet…

      I get it – I can’t have nice things either, but it’s not because of my kid…it’s ME! I’m clumsy and I don’t take good care of my things. I don’t deserve expensive things. :)

    Ooooh, sparkles! I think the insects would have been my favourite but those birds are exquisite! I know that Swarovski sometimes run jewellery making courses – perhaps that could be our way to afford one of their pieces?? :)
