Claus KontaktDear harp friends,

Many thanks for visiting my webpage - I hope it has given you an insight into my work as well as passing on information on the historical harp. If it has awakened your interest in discussing your own individual instrument, I look forward to hearing from you!

I wish you lots of pleasure with harps!

Directions to my workshop:

Düren / Echtz is a small village on the western edge of the plain of Cologne. This is where I have my workshop.
The Eifel hills are only a stone’s throw away and offer lovely woods for walking and rambling.
Cologne and Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle) are both half an hour away and offer a rich cultural life. Both towns have their own flair and attractions.
