Historical hiking trail between Wolfshagen im Harz and Seesen
Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg (1797-1871) was born in Wolfshagen. In 1825 he came to Seesen and worked as a master carpenter. For a start musically gifted Heinrich Engelhard casually repaired square pianos and musical instruments, before establishing this business on a regular basis in 1836. He specialised in the construction of pianos and soon made a mark as an instrument maker. In 1850, the family emigrated to New York. With their so far acquired knowledge and skills they in 1853 launched the later on internationally known company Steinway & Sons. The Steinweg, later Steinway, family always maintained the contact with their native country and came over and over again for visit. Today numerous tracks of the family still can be found in Wolfshagen im Harz and Seesen.
