Open-air theatre

"Glassworks: The yearning of the sand grain" a play by Ernst Streng in Hopfgarten

A historic location, a moving story and a fascinating open-air setting - all this is combined in the new play "Glassworks: The yearning of the sand grain" by Ernst Streng. With this special play, the author has succeeded in reproducing the historic dimension of the magical location and has made the actual place of what happened the setting for the theatre. Don’t miss out when the Hörbrunn church ruins become a stage, and let the theatre performance under the open starry skies fascinate you.

Directed by Markus Plattner, who has already staged the passion play Erl, the actors and actresses from the Volksbühne Hopfgarten make the play come alive this time.

The theatre play

The story begins in the year 1872, at a time when life in Hörbrunn glassworks was all good. Glassmaster Franz Friedrich can delight in his many employees and good profits. Hörbrunn Church is being built. Marie, servant in the mill, and young glassmaker Pavel are happily in love. As soon as the church is finished, the two want to seal their love there and get married. But life sometimes takes its own course ... and everything turns out different than planned!

The church ruins Hörbrunn

The church ruins Hörbrunn are a special, historic place in Hopfgarten. But today it’s hard to imagine that at this so secluded location between Hopfgarten and Kelchsau once stood a successful glassworks. The church ruins are on the one hand a monument to the aspiring era of glass production and at the same time bears witness to its downfall. The planned Hörbrunn church was never completed due to economic difficulties.

Retrace the history of the church ruins. The historic location can be reached via an easy hike and combined with a wonderfully scenic round tour across Glantersberg Mountain.
