In 2006/07, The "Aelteste Volkstedter Porzellanmanufaktur" in Rudolstadt, south of Weimar, was transformed into a “Gläsernen Porzellanmanufaktur“ (‘transparent’ porcelain manufacturer). It is now one of the most famous porcelain manufacturers in the world. It is also the oldest of the manufacturers still producing today Thüringens and the cradle of the Thuringian porcelain figure. During a guided tour, visitors can follow the creation of the artwork by looking over the shoulder of the artists. It goes without saying that products are also sold from the workshop, so that some of the goods whose production has been admired can also be purchased directly.
