Owner description: Old Abbey Discovery Centre Visit the Villeroy&Boch Discovery Centre: With its scenic landscapes and diverse cultural and culinary offerings, the great Germany-France-Luxembourg border triangle is well worth a visit. A special attraction on the "Saar Loop" Like no other company, Villeroy & Boch has enhanced everyday living and quality of life for many generations with beautiful and stylish things. A visit to Mettlach's Old Abbey, the headquarters of the company founded in 1748, will take you on a very special voyage of discovery

What is really worthwhile is the film - in English this is narrated by none other than Peter Ustinov! What a joy! It was so interesting. The museum with its porcelain displays and history of the family's involvement in porcelain manufacture was very interesting and I could have stayed longer to watch one of the other films that I only got to see part of.

Thank you for your great rating about your visit at the Villeroy & Boch visitor centre. The film with Sir Peter Ustinov is really a great joy as it tells a lot about more than 260 years of Villeroy & Boch history in a very enchanting way.
Did you know that you can even stay at the ancient home of the von Boch family at Schloss Saareck? Please contact us for further information.

Even if you are not really interested in porcelain, this is well worth a visit as it shows modern design & techniques and a fascinating history of a family business. Most of the displays are in several languages and the factory production videos in German are still worthwhile. The helpful lady at reception made it possible for us to see the video on the history of Villeroy & Boch in English as well.

This is an interesting place to visit if you like Villeroy & Boch and want to find out more about its history as well as its current production methods. There are some really nice 18th-century exhibits on display, and some of the 20th-century styles are fascinating, too. You can also watch some instructive films that show how V & B operates today. There's a magnificent coffee place inside the museum, which was however closed when we visited (but you can still go inside and look at it).
On the whole, this was a nice little detour on a visit to IKEA - certainly worth it.

The ceramic manufacturer's early production is just fine. Valuable objects give a good picture of the history of ceramic objects. This museum is close to the V & B
