Current information and opening hours

The Transparent Factory is open to visitors, event guests and for vehicle pick-ups. The basis for the opening is the current Corona Protection Ordinance of the Free State of Saxony. The access regulations as well as the mask requirement in the visitor area have been lifted. 

We still recommend compliance with the distance and hygiene rules.

More information on our hygiene rules can be found here.

Please note that on most days we currently offer German tours only. Please contact us in advance if you want to request an English tour. You can also check our calendar in the booking form for available English tours.

Currently, construction work is taking place in our parking lot, which may lead to restrictions in access. However, charging of e-cars is still possible. Thank you for your understanding.
