Road Trip to Glashütte
After last year’s trip to Switzerland this time we travel to visit the capital of German watchmaking – Glashütte in Saxony.
Just a few dozen kilometers from the western border of Poland lies a small, picturesque village of Glashütte. Even though at first glance it is one of many beautiful looking places to be found across Europe, for mechanical art of watchmaking it is of major importance. It’s the informal home of watches “Made in Germany”. It all started well over 150 years ago by the hand of Ferdinand Adolf Lange and is today cultivated by almost every respected manufacture, led by A.Lange & Söhne, Glashütte Original and Nomos. We will pay a visit to the Altenberger Straße, home of all three brands, as well as Deutsche Uhrenmuseum and a couple of special places in nearby Dresden.
