Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Eisenach in Thuringia. In Eisenach today there are more than 250 original exhibits on display inside the 600m² museum dedicated to him: Bach House.
Hourly concerts played on baroque keyboard instruments, music in floating 'bubble chairs' and a multimedia 'walk-in composition' based on four Bach performances – they never fail to impress visitors to the Bach House. Exquisite contemporary artefacts in the museum include a Bach manuscript, the mysterious Bach goblet and a forensic reconstruction of the composer's face. The baroque garden and the Café Kantate make inviting places to relax.
