W. Hoffmann — Made in Europe

A dream –
and a lot
of passion


THE ORIGIN — Anno 1893

On the second floor of a residential house in the German center of piano making, Berlin, a young woman dares to pursue her dream.
As one of very few women of her time, she founds her own company: the Pianofabrik W. Hoffmann, which will grow to become the  “Pianoforte- und Flügelfabrik W. Hoffmann GmbH” in 1904.

European craft

The first touch of the keys rewards with the magic of the singing, colored and well balanced sound European pianos are famous for – and which can only be achieved by manufactories using utmost attention to detail from highly skilled artisans who breathe the European spirit. Made in one of Europe’s centers of piano making, Hradec Králové, W. Hoffmann pairs Czech piano making tradition with constant innovation.


Hradec Králové is a traditional location for grand and upright piano manufacturing in the Czech Republic. The piano manufacturing craft has belonged to this highly musical region for far more than one hundred years.
