  • In the small museum, which is located in the Church of St. Thomas, represented by musical instruments, books, notes and other relics related to the era and life of the great composer.

  • Leipzig, is famous for the birthplace of Johann s. Bach and visit the local Museum is a necessity. It's not for everyone, but if you don't have anything to do, it's worth a visit.

  • We came across by chance there and were fortunate that the admission of the 332. anniversary of Bach was free of charge. Unfortunately, we had very little time available and could therefore inside unfortunately only a little taste - in the garden and the various exhibition halls with exhibits to touch (pull-out register, metal columns, etc) and listening (headphones). We are definitely back and with correspondingly longer.

  • 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.
