  • Great experience! So much to see and hear. Audio guide worked really well. We were in the for over 2 hours but could have taken even longer. Really recommended when you're in Leipzig.
  • Perfect conditions in memory of Bach, his family, life, work and three women musicians related to him, all outstanding in family and careers.
