Owner description: Bach served as the choirmaster at this church, to which his grave was moved in 1949, for the last 27 years of his life.

Went to the church on a friday night to see a Bach Motette, 2 euros for an hours beautiful music, and a chance to see a church being used as it should be. Highly recommend

On top of the weekly "Motet" performance by the amazing choir bearing the J.S. Bach tradition, this premises is quite frequently offering musical offerings of wider scope, which are always a pleasure to every music lover.

look carefully at the windows for a history lesson. They were filming for German television when I was there so I didn't get to see much

We attended the St John Passion, under the baton of John Elliot Gardner - a fantastic performance in the church for which it was written. Huge thunderstorm during the show, which added to the drama. Wonderful to be in Bach's own church, still used by the choir that he ran nearly 300 years ago.

But popped my head inside. As part of the Bach Festival a "disputuation" was to be held.

Gift shop beside the church was good.

WC modern (outside looke dhorrible) and at 50 cent euro, par for Germany.
