There are a lot of reasons to visit Bayreuth - not only while the Richard Wagner Festival takes place.
The piano maker, Steingraeber & Söhne, is located in the heart of Bayreuth. The Gründerzeit era building lies just 40 metres from Richard Wagner's first home. Musical craft and craftsmanship were next door neighbors. This is where concert grands for the world's stages and concert halls are built in the traditional, time honoured way. Only five piano factories in the world still build custom instruments by hand.
The Steingraeber House is a Rokoko palais build in 1754. Even today it has it's former appearence. It is a living cultural center for Bayreuth with its salons, the rooms with upright and grand pianos, the event venues Rokokosaal and Kammermusiksaal and the summer theatre.
In our factory you are very welcome to experience how we create the unique qualities of our pianos. You can choose a piano with the sound and sense that suits you best. Or let us build it for you just the way you want it to be. Your ideas are welcome!
Regulary there are fine piano concerts and other events in our Steingraeber House, street Friedrichstraße 2. Find out more.
The construction works at Villa Wahnfried show great progress. First results will be seen by end of 2013.
