The Greifenberg Institute of Organology is a private non profit GmbH ("Ltd.") under German law in Greifenberg near the Ammersee for research, documentation and re-construction of historic keyboard - at present with a focus on grand pianofortes before 1800. 

The research, reconstruction and repetition of historic craftsmanship and working procedures in keyboard instrument making form a major part of our activities, combined with research of contemporary musical and cultural contexts of these instruments.
