  • As a Bach fan was the Museum a must. Relatively small area very loving but modern and interactive museum. There are various life stations music examples to the sound. Including many highlights of the history of music. Unfortunately these were not to acquire the small shop. The cashier but admitted that he would very often asking for sound recordings played Inc. Here the suggestion of the Museum Director. Anyway, the shop is not very well blessed with Bach music. That's too bad, because you expect here. If not here, where else.

  • Einfach toll! Ein Muss für Bachfans!!!
  • We got married in the summer Hall there. It is a really special place, directly in the Bach archive. The museum itself is a small, but very fine Museum with very helpful and friendly staff. A place where it both interesting is to browse, where one feels at the same time but also very welcome. For a visit to Leipzig I recommend it very much because it gives a more personal impression as other places.
