Porcelain Trip with Outlet Shopping
A theme that still thrives in this region: porcelain! The Fichtelgebirge (Fichtel Mountains) and neighbouring Oberpfalz (Upper Palatinate) regions are still the heart of the European and German porcelain industry. Companies like Rosenthal are among the leading names in the industry. If you are interested in finding out something about porcelain today then you simply must pay a visit to Porzellanikon – Staatliches Museum für Porzellan, Hohenberg an der Eger / Selb. Everything in the museum is authentic. Live Demonstrations show visitors in a fun and interesting way the Production methods and history of “White Gold”. Excellent scenography and audiovisual media invite visitors to marvel at the exhibits and learn more. Lifestyle, Art and Design of the past, present and future – Porzellanikon is always reinventing itself.

Guided tours to choose from:
Special exhibition "Luxury, Wellness, Porcelain - A Day at the Bohemian Spa". (bookable from April 2023)
Together we will take a journey back in time to the 19th century, when high society took a cure in the Bohemian spa triangle of Karlovy Vary, Marienbad and Franzensbad. Famous personalities such as the Austrian Empress Sisi travelled to Bohemia to strengthen their health through drinking cures, exercise or baths. Together we experience the daily routine of a spa guest and encounter the luxurious porcelain of the Bohemian porcelain factories.
Colourful drinking culture
This is about drinking coffee, tea and chocolate in style. These hot beverages were the fashionable drinks of the 18th century and are still part of a cosy get-together today. How has drinking culture changed over the centuries and why do tea and coffee pots still look different today? We will explore these questions during the short guided tour.
Fantastic animal creatures
Porcelain animal figures were already very popular with porcelain lovers in the 18th century. How has the design changed since then and which animals have been depicted? Together we will go in search of clues under the motto "Fantastic Beasts". We will discover elephants, cats, birds and many other exotic animals such as lions, rhinos and co.
White gold - everyday life at court
Valuable porcelain treasures tell of life at the princely court. Finely laid porcelain tables and porcelain figurines were an integral part of court life. Collectors such as Augustus the Strong, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland, even presented porcelain in their own palace. But what do porcelain objects tell us about the toilet and clothing at court? We will explore these questions together and let ourselves be enchanted by the white gold in our villa in Hohenberg.
Creative programmes to choose from:
Painting porcelain: A large selection of porcelain figures and tableware is available for painting.
Designing porcelain figurines: Imaginative and colourfully decorated figures can be made from shards.
