Possible to see violin maker in Fussen?


We will be traveling to Fussen in March 2013. Is there a violin maker we could observe crafting a violin? Is there a violin specific museum?

And, are there mandolin makers in Fussen as well?

Thank you!

Not sure about Fuessen, but nearby Mittenwald is the violin maker center in Bavaria.

As Treplow says, Mittenwald is a violin making center. There is even a violin-making museum. When we were there several years ago there was a violin shop on the main pedestrian street, and we were lucky to see a craftsman making an instrument. Here's a link to the museum. alpenwelt-karwendel.de/en/violin-making-muse…
