Orchestras and musical societies



Attention all wind instrument enthusiasts!

Join us in a paradise full of clarinets, trumpets, trombones, ...

Companies of world renown, such as the Buffet Group Germany (B&S, Buffet Crampon, J. Keilwerth, W. Schreiber and others), Gebrüder Mönnig – Oscar Adler & Co. or Jürgen Voigt are glad to open their workshops and allow you to participate in what otherwise happens behind closed doors. You can watch and admire, listen, feel, soak up the typical odours ... and naturally go into action yourself. The whole beautiful diversity of woodwind and brass instruments is simply waiting to be played. And the workshop supervisor or production manager is at your side in person to answer any questions you may have.

Our special recommendation: A visit to the last remaining mouthpiece workshop in the Vogtland region.

We would be pleased to help you plan an individual travel program around your workshop visit; we have ideas to suit all interests, age groups and budgets.


Children's and youth travel packages

We offer youth group leaders and music school teachers ideas of a very special kind for an excursion with their class, for the planned rehearsal camp with their youth orchestra or for a group team-building experience, for example. Your young musicians can experience at first hand how much skill and care goes into the making of their instruments. They can ask all their questions, hold the tools in their own hands and try things out for themselves. Besides learning, discovering and playing music together, they can look forward to exciting leisure-time fun and a really cool youth hostel.

Please contact us for an individual offer.
