Violin makers in Mittenwald: contemporary masters keeping their tradition alive with their vibrant craftsmanship.


<span class="darkBlue">Mittenwald violin makers:
an overview of today's masters in the town with the rich tradition of violin making


With its rich traditions, the violin-making town of Mittenwald is a place that is solidly anchored in European instrument history: the historical achievements of Matthias Klotz and his son Sebastian Klotz, the work of Matthias „Dax“ Hornsteiner and the internationally acclaimed ateliers run by the families Baader and Neuner have all earned it this acclaim. Mentioning these great Mittenwald names only hints at the town’s history, and anyone who visits the charming village in the upper Isar valley could easily believe that all of Mittenwald is nothing but a large violin-making museum.

But that could not be farther from the truth: even in the present day, Mittenwald has remained a dynamic site for the contemporary craft of violin making. Its State Vocational School for Instrument Making is an international institution, and the numerous violin makers and master violin makers located in Mittenwald ensure that the tradition of its musical forefathers stays alive. For many years, Corilon violins has maintained special cordial relationships to Mittenwald, which is why we are also providing an overview of the outstanding ateliers in the town on this page.
