Competition

Every 4 years the Mittenwald violin competition is held in June. Mittenwald looks back on a long history of violinmaking and was the competition for the first time in 1989. At the Mittenwald violin making competition, a jury of ten distinguished the best violins, violas, cellos and bows, which must have been produced within the previous two years. Imitations and instruments which differ from the usual rules of the craft could not be submitted.
