A beautiful blend of traditional and modern
Located between Bohemia and Bavaria, Mitterteich is surrounded by gentle hills, clear streams, and acres of forest, making this historic town highly attractive to fans of the outdoors – as well as glass. The glass industry has been thriving in Mitterteich for centuries, and now SCHOTT has transformed this traditional knowledge into a high-tech business that has a key role in many industries around the world.
