Christoph von der Nahmer started playing the violin at the age of five. He studied under Thomas Brandis, the long-time first concertmaster of the Berliner Philharmoniker, and was a scholarship holder at the Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan. This was followed by solo performances with the Landesjugendorchester NRW, the Baden-Baden Philharmonie and the Berliner Symphoniker. In 1997, Christoph von der Nahmer was accepted into the second violin section of the Berliner Philharmoniker while still a student. It was not until the following year that he took his concert exam at Berlin University of the Arts. In addition to his work in the orchestra and solo performances, the violinist is involved in various chamber music ensembles.
