A quiet refuge. Full of history. Plain but very elegant church. Well worth a visit. Along with Nikolai church, these two were at the centre of demonstrations in 1989 that eventually led to the downfall of the DDR regime.

I visited Thomaskirche last December. I heard they just finished the renovation. I came for the opera on Christmas. The church is not big but looks historical. in winter they have colossal heather inside to make us more comfortable.

For a music lover -- classical music, I mean -- this is all that needs to be said. If you are in Leipzig you have to come to this place. Then think for a moment... this is where J.S.Bach worked (note that a lot of...More

This beautiful, well-maintained church invites visitors to enjoy spectacular stained glass windows and interesting architecture. Certainly worth a stop when exploring downtown Leipzig.

This is interesting because of its history and because it has Bach's grave in it. Unfortunately because of the timings we were not able to get to one of the concerts but I think that would be very special.

Couldn't believe we stayed directly across from the church where Bach served as the conductor and Mozart played. Historically-significant and beautiful, taking us back to long ago.

Hi, unfortunately no. According to their website there isn't much to do during the week. Services are on Sundays and much of the action are on Saturdays... It's a shame. Cheers Carl
