Arts and Crafts on the Golden Road

GALLERY
Dürer’s rabbit, a modern sculpture which cowers below the ramparts of the castle in the centre of Nuremberg, is not all that the region has to offer. Nuremberg itself has its Institute for Modern Art, and Prague’s Barandov film studios are just a tiny part of what is on offer on our KulTour. Hidden galleries, sculpture from all ages and traditional arts and crafts.


A Weidener as far a field as Tokyo’s gourmet restaurant Aragawa might turn the plate over to examine the name underneath. It was made in Weiden. Glass and porcelain manufacture were such a huge part of the economy in the Upper Palatinate for many hundreds of years. Globalisation caused many problems for the traditional crafts and forced many companies out of business. A handful have taken the opportunity and like Xaver Hofmeister have begun afresh, with new ideas. In the Evelynhütte in Amberg the glassmakers create blown glass from designers and artists such as Otmar Alt.
Golden Shopping Trip: Bohemian garnets set in gold, beautiful glass crystal, hand blown glass pieces and goblets, or pottery with all manner of patterns: the list of possible gifts is endless. The shelves are full of lovely, interesting things, and some not so lovely for example the garden gnomes created cheaply for the Chinese market.
