Thilde van Norel

Dutch violin maker Thilde van Norel lives and works in Berlin with her guitar-making husband and their two children. A talented instrument-maker with a network of musician friends, Thilde loves the freedom, space and creativity Berlin embodies.
Our favourite Berlin tip from Thilde van Norel: The book store and social initiative Büchertisch at Mehringdamm, where all children can choose a free book. Local schools receive regular book donations from the store too.

Berlin is full of artists, students and music lovers. That’s why we’re here.
