DIE GLÄSERNE MANUFAKTUR
Parking when arriving by car
If you are visiting the Gläserne Manufaktur or the e-VITRIUM restaurant, you can park for free in our visitors’ parking lot. This is located on Lennéstrasse and is easy to reach if you are driving from the direction of Lennéplatz. If you are arriving from the other direction, please note that Lennéstrasse is divided by a track bed that cannot be crossed to enter the visitors’ parking lot. For this reason, we recommend using Blüherstrasse to access the parking lot from this direction. Click here to view or download a detailed map.
