A German musician needed medical treatment after forgetting his violin worth around a million euros (1.4 million dollars) on a train, police said on Monday.

The 55-year-old left the instrument, made in Italy in 1748, on a regional train in Munich on Friday evening after arriving back at the southern city's airport from a trip to Asia.

"He got off the train but he forgot to take the violin with him. Police launched a search and found it still on the train, still on the seat where he left it," a spokesman told AFP.

"He needed treatment from a doctor but it was nothing dramatic. He was just a bit nervous because he thought he had lost it."
