Woodcarving Bachmann Josef, Johannes and Elias.
The traditional wood carving business Bachmann was founded in 1972 by Bachmann Josef. Josef Bachmann discovered his passion for wood, in his eyes the most beautiful raw material, at an early age. Even his father, a mountain farmer from Antholz, enjoyed carving during the long winter months. Josef attended the art school in Val Gardena and later studied for a few years with the well-known master wood sculptor Favio Pancheri. After completing his apprenticeship and with a great deal of motivation, Josef Bachmann opened his workshop in March 1972. Even as children, his sons Johannes and Elias enjoyed looking over their father's shoulders when he was carving, just as he once did with his father. Over the years, Johannes and Elias also learned this trade and have been working in the family business since 2002.
The trio from Antholz has also been traveling to numerous Christmas markets in Germany for several years. The family business exhibits the wood carvings it produces during the year in Frankfurt am Main, Duisburg and Leipzig.
Our store is located in the historic upper town of Bruneck.
