... 165 years of captivating sound, crafted by hand


Pianos from the Heart of Germany

The AUGUST FÖRSTER piano workshop is available to meet all your upright piano and grand piano needs. Local suppliers and craftsmanship made in Germany safeguard our ability to produce instruments without relying on materials shipped over long distances. Are you interested in an instrument? Please drop us a line; you will receive a prompt response. We look forward to hearing from you!

Piano-Making is an Art – and Art Stems from Skill

That is our legacy. Our passion and enthusiasm for creating unique instruments always spur us to new heights of creativity and craftsmanship. That is the strength and the lifeblood of our company.


Currently, AUGUST FÖRSTER employs a staff of 39 people who produce approximately 60 grand pianos and 120 upright pianos every year. Customers and interested parties have the opportunity to take a tour of our production facilities, to see us hand-crafting the instruments in person. For many of our customers, this chance to witness the creation of “their instrument” is an increasingly vital aspect of the process.
