Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • The Museum is recommended also for musically less interested in any case! There's an excellent impression in the time in which Bach lived and provides an overview of his work.

  • A guided tour is worthwhile anyway! The original furnished rooms can be seen in the timber-frame house from 1456 and the instrument Hall a Miniconcert on Baroque instruments can be heard. In the new building, there is a "walk-on music piece" with a 180-degree screen and in freely suspended "Bubblechairs" you can experience world of Bach's music through headphones. We stayed much longer than suggested in the Museum, it was too exciting and instructive!

  • We could see only the old building and got a great guide or musical introduction to Bach's music and the instruments of his time there. Absolutely impressive, for the rest, we had more haven't had time...
