This was announced by the Federal Criminal Police Office on Friday. On March 27, the woman had forgotten the 80,000 euro violin by the Viennese violin maker Gabriel Lemböck on the train. She promised 2,500 euros.
The 33-year-old got out at the main train station. It wasn’t until the next day that she noticed that she had left her violin case in the set. First, the woman contacted the Austrian Federal Railways to see if the instrument had been handed in somewhere. On April 3, the 33-year-old reported to the police. The inscription “Gabriel Lemböck fecit secundum Josephi Guarneri Cremonesis originale ex Nicolai Paganini Concertuosa Violina. Viennae Anno 1858. IHS” can be read on the violin.
