If you are interested in Bach, here you can see where he directed his choir and also see original manuscripts and instruments in the attached museum. A must-see for music history buffs!

“Great place to hear music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

This is the place Bach served as cantor, wring much of his wonderful music written here. Free concerts on Friday, the Bach Museum accross the street, and his tomb in the church. Not to be missed.

“Don't Pass This Church By”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Found it interesting that Bach was reburied here. Also, the roof is seven stories high with a 63% pitch. Fascinating Structure and history.

This church was beautiful and serene. It was humbling to see the place where Bach lived and worked. Plus, it was free to visit!
