The Fussen Museum: the City’s History in a Monastery

The Fussen Museum is located in the south wing of the former Benedictine Monastery of St. Magnus. The main exhibition is devoted to the lute and violin. In the Middle Ages, surrounded by spruce, maple and yew forests Fussen was a major European center for the production of stringed instruments. In the XVI century, the first guild of lute producers was founded in the city. In the XVIII century, 80 craftsmen worked here. Their products were popular throughout Europe.

Local craftsmen founded the famous Viennese School. Geissenhof Franz, who was called the Viennese Stradivari was born in Fussen. Master Carl Leonhardt gave the museum a vast collection of stringed instruments of the XVII-XIX centuries and equipment from his workshop to demonstrate the process of creating the violin.
