Geigenbaumuseum (Violin Making museum)

In the Ballenhausgasse of Mittenwald there is a museum in which history comes alive. The Geigenbaumuseum in the heart of Mittenwald sheds light on the long tradition of this craft and shows how strongly violin making is connected with the local history. About 200 violins and plucking instruments are displayed, from a high-quality master violin to a simple dealer instrument (“Mittenwalder Verlegergeige”).

Experience craft

The small meeting hall of the museum is repeatedly used for concerts and readings. Changing special exhibitions deal with the turbulent history of the Upper Isar Valley , and the demonstration workshop offers the opportunity to look over the shoulder of a genuine violin maker. Ideal conditions for simply whiling away the time or bridging a rainy day.
