“About 350 instruments total. The collection of some 265 bowed and plucked stringed instruments illustrates 200 years of instrument building in the Markneukirchen tradition. More important instruments include a violin by Gregorius Karp, Königsberg, 1699; and others by Hopf, Ficker, Glass, etc. Altogether there are 47 stringed instruments of Bohemian and Sachsen regional significance. …. Keyboard instruments include pianos by F. Kuhlbörs, Clementi & Co., and a square piano by Steinway. Also, installed in the cloister refectory is an organ by Friedrich Wilhelm Wäldner, Dorfkirche-von-Morl (near Halle), ca. 1850.” –CIMCIM
