THE LUTHIERS

Welcome at The Luthiers. The name refers to a century old craft of lute and violin builder. About 1600 the luthier was already well-known. More than 400 years later the name will be passed on. The Luthiers is the name of a house of craft, music and hospitality. A new institution with a long term tradition, situated in the beautiful centre of Dordrecht, the oldest city of The Netherlands.

Behind the name The Luthiers are two people: Lucienne van der Lans and Wout Bosma who are violin and guitar builders since 1987. For a long time they worked in another part of the historical centre. There they built instruments and built up trust. In September 2010 they moved into a fully renovated historical building at the Voorstraat 13, near the Groothoofd and the amazing Three-Rivers-Point. The building consists of an atelier for building and renovating stringed instruments and a livingroom for small concerts. For a longer stay two guesthouses are available. In the year 1600 they called it a country lodge, in the 21th century Bed & Breakfast.
