The violin making exhibition VioViva Kronberg

The international violin making exhibition offers a glimpse into the fascinating world of modern instrument making

Where do violins, violas and cellos come from? All over the world!

It’s showtime for a living craft with a rich tradition: the international violin making exhibition VioViva Kronberg is making its debut in parallel to the Kronberg Festival.

40 luthiers, bow makers, string manufacturers and accessories suppliers will come together here to present instruments and bows from their workshops in what promises to be a highly interesting event for everyone, not just professionals!

All visitors will be able to view the masterpieces at close hand, and marvel at the fruits yielded by the labours of modern violin making.
