St. Thomas Church - Review

Considered as one of the two houses of worship in Leipzig, St. Thomas Church is a worth visit place from a religious point of view as well as from a traveler’s view point. Located at the center of the city, the church is said to be the final resting place of Johann Sebastian Bach, the Cantor of St. Thomas. His grave lies beneath the bronze plate in front of the altar. Today, visitors from all over the world come here not only to see the grave but also to hear the motet by the St. Thomas Boys Choir. That’s why; the church has become both a place of worship as well as a center of musical creativity.

Come here to attend the musical concerts and organ music that takes place in the church. Don’t forget to climb up the Steeple tower from where you get a jaw-dropping of the entire city of Leipzig. You can also see the 500 year old Gothic roof truss from the top of this tower.

St. Thomas Church, Leipzig Reviews

Google+
  • This church holds the grave of Johan Sebastian Bach. It is a church with quite a historical value. This is a must-visit spot in Leipzig. There's a quick eatery next to the church and the place is family-friendly. A great spot to enjoy one of the oldest choirs in Germany, if not the entire world.

  • This place is famous for the musician Bach especially. This church is a typical design for worship with pipe organs. A live and peaceful place.

  • Amazing church. The chior was rehearsing when we went into the church. This made a hudge impression. The grave is in such a good state.. like it was last week. Fresh flowers and this chior rehearsing. So beautiful rest place to lay among your own music still beeing sung and played today.

  • How can one describe the amazing feeling of hearing Eric Ericson Kammarkör singing Bach oratorios during the Bach- festival? Amazing!!

  • Well known because of the St Thomas boys choir and its former conductor Johann Sebastian Bach.
