Serving as a museum to classical composer Johann Sebastian Bach, Bachhaus is a small Eisenach house originally thought to be the birthplace of Bach in 1685. Even though it was disproven, the New Bach Society purchased the building in 1906. Stop here to learn about Bach's life and career through more than 250 original exhibits, including antique musical instruments, a Bach music autograph, and a comprehensive listening room. Concerts occasionally take place here. Check for schedules and tickets on the museum's website. To visit Bachhaus on your trip to Eisenach, use our Eisenach travel tool .

  • The Bach House Eisenach consists of the original House and a modern extension. It is only through the old rooms, where the Museum was eager to find timely. Unfortunately, the originals were not appreciated at the time. A date on which you can listen to Bach music on - only for the time - old instruments is on the ticket. It is also already a new grade transverse spinet (i.e. different) have been built so could Johann Sebastian also evening/night practice to interfere without the little ones or in the cold Church. Worthwhile. Then you go in the House next or one enters the cultivation and enjoys the many music samples that are offered one in the position or standing. Here alone the closing time may surprise you. Always worth a visit - not even € 10.

  • In Eisenach, the Bach House (by the father of the master) is not hard to achieve. If you are coming by bus, you almost fall into it. The composer greets a before. Only it is so that most control the 1.5 km from Wartburg Castle or the nearby city. The number of visitors in the Bauchhaus plus Museum was open. Three things we have particularly noticed: the demonstration of historical musical instruments, the music in addition to introduction to Baroque music and the old House itself. Stay a while and relax with music or in the cafeteria. Should you take anything in the city, try the home-made ice cream on the market where everybody's, as at that time in the HO or better out there. Attention, in bars and Cafés is still room for expansion.
