Schimmel offers a magnificent range of grand and upright pianos for the discerning pianist. These superb instruments combine tradition with innovation, to give you a brilliant playing experience. 

On May 2, 1885, Wilhelm Schimmel founded Schimmel pianos in a suburb of Leipzig, Germany. During his life he was honored with titles of purveyor to royal houses, as well as numerous awards at world expositions and fairs. This testifies to the quality of his instruments and business dealings. Still to this day, Schimmel continues to cultivate the fine art and craft of piano manufacturing.

In 1927, the management of the company passed on to the second generation, Wilhelm Arno Schimmel. He relocated the production to Braunschweig and led the family business through difficult years. He proved an inspiration to the piano industry, leaving his imprint on an entire epoch of piano designing and opening up new paths with his modern designs.

Since 1961, the company was under the management of the third generation, Nikolaus Wilhelm Schimmel. Under his leadership, Schimmel advanced to become Germany's No. 1 resident family owned and operated piano manufacturer, one of the few companies still in the hands of direct descendents of the original founder for over a century. Today Schimmel continues to rank as one of the world's top brands in the piano industry.



In recent years, Mr. Hannes M. Schimmel-Vogel joined the Schimmel Management and in 2005 became the new head of the company. Along with Gabriela M. Schimmel and assisted by an exceptional team of staff members, the fourth generation continues the legacy of craftsmanship and artistry associated with this company since 1885. 

On May 2nd, 2010 Schimmel celebrated its 125th anniversary. Since this time, Schimmel has seen a strong increase in revenue and orders.  

To progress in piano manufacturing, Schimmel has always looked on its secrets and its tradition. Whether you consider the sound-producing portions, or keyboard-and-action assemblies, the woodworking or design, the research or development, Schimmel know how unite all these areas to create harmony. This is eloquently testified by their instruments and is something you can hear, feel, see and experience with Schimmel pianos.

Schimmel is one of the few piano-manufacturing companies where the art and craft of traditional piano manufacturing is still being carried on, by direct descendents of the founder of the company. This results in top-quality instruments. It is with good reason that the brand name Schimmel enjoys an excellent reputation worldwide.
