Johann Sebastian Bach Cycle Tour

Apart from a few exceptions, the places where Bach worked fall within a relatively small geographical area. You can “experience” Bach’s life, from Eisenach where he was born to Leipzig where he died, by bike – a unique way to approach this Baroque musician. Two young cycle tour guides who are also professional musicians will sweep you away on an extraordinarily inspiring combination of nature and culture in the footsteps of Bach.

Leipzig Bach Festival

Every year starting on October 1, Friends of the Leipzig Bach Archive have the possibility of buying exclusive early tickets for the Leipzig Bach Festival on the Web site. In the Programme/Tickets section on the home page you can log in using the username and password that we send you at the latest by the end of the September.
