The "Freudenthal Glass" Museum interprets the history of Weißenkirchen that became a great glassmaking center during the 18th and 19th centuries.
In the year 1716, Count Franz Ferdinand Khevenhüller founded the glassworks in Freudenthal that were in operation until 1942. The Freudenthal Glassworks were rated among the most important factories during the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
