Visiting the Bach Family – A Tour with Bach’s Wife, Anna Magdalena
With his Archive, Museum and the Bach Festival, you will always be confronted with the name of Johann Sebastian Bach in Leipzig. When Bach assumed the office as organist and choirmaster of the world famous boys’ choir of St. Thomas Church in 1723, his constantly growing family moved to Leipzig, too.
On this tour Bach’s second wife Anna Magdalena is going to accompany you dressed in historical clothes and she will actively gossip about everyday life in the great musician’s family and about life in the trade fair city of Leipzig during the 18th century. You will get to know a lot about work and life over the 27-year period Bach lived in Leipzig straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak. You will start with a visit in the Old Town Hall, and continue to different stops in the inner city culminating at St. Thomas Church.
This tour can be booked as a private tour for your group.
