There are Klais Organs on every continent. They sound in churches, in Cathedrals and in concert halls; in cities as well as in villages.
For more than 125 years - in the fourth generation now - organ building has been the principal concern of the Klais family. For more than 125 years they have both lived and worked under the same roof. The workshop Klais is home to a staff of approximately 65 dedicated craftsmen.
They are bound by tradition: preservation of old values, maintenance of what has proved worthwile. Yet with time new laws evolve. Modern technology may sometimes be applied discreetly. New methods appear in organ building. Klais aims to strike the right balance.
The factory walk offers you the opportunity to get interesting insights in the work of the organ builders, spanning the modern age and the tradition, with the focus on creating a lively instrument - as for example the recent Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.
Unfortunately this factory visit is not accessible for disabled people.
