A church that hosts one of the best choirs and was where Bach himself used to play. Sat in one of the services for over an hour, and even though the choir was good, having to listen to two songs that were just a total of 40 minutes each was not the easiest thing to stay alert to after a very long day. It's also quite hard to singalong in a language you can't speak, but that didn't bother me too much. Regardless, it was a good experience.

This is a lovely church and well worth the visit. It was the church that Johann Sebastian Bach composed and is buried in. It's small and wonderful and quite simple in its design. I've enjoyed sitting in it many times and just taking it.

Diese Kirche ist mitunter für den weltbekannten St.Thomas Chor besuchenswert. Die Kirche ist im gotischen Stil gebaut und bieten auch von innen einen schönen Blick in das Kirchenschiff. Marthin Luther hat hier gebetet und Johann Sebastian Bach war der Chordirektor der Kirche, somit hat sie auch wichtige geschichtliche Bezüge. Ich kann es nur empfehlen, hier einmal vorbei zu schauen, zumal die Kirche zu den wichtigsten Leipziger Wahrzeichen gehört. Außerdem lässt es sich gut mit dem Besuch des Bach's Museum kombinieren.
