HOHNER at World Harmonica Festival 2013
As the main sponsor, HOHNER will have a wide ranging presence at the WHF 2013, the largest international harmonica festival:
- Factory tours
On Saturday 2nd November, factory tours will be available from 9:30am to 4pm in various different languages. This offers festival visitors the opportunity to experience the manufacture of HOHNER quality harmonicas at first hand.
- HOHNER Service Center
During the festival, the HOHNER Service Training Center will set up shop in the Dr. Ernst Hohner Konzerthaus. At different work stations, the Service Team will demonstrate how interested players can maintain and repair their own instruments, as well as learning to adjust them optimally to suit their individual playing styles.

- German Harmonica and Accordion Museum
The German Harmonica and Accordion Museum has much to offer WHF visitors who are interested in the history of our instrument. As well as guided tours of the permanent exhibition, the museum will be placing its annexe in the historic Building V on the former HOHNER factory site at the disposal of festival visitors as a players' lounge and meeting place. Attractions there include a special exhibition on the history of the World Harmonica Festival, a flea market for harmonicas and accessories and a short special concert by legendary harmonica customizer Joe Filisko.
