Thomaskirche

Thomaskirche

The restored Gothic Thomaskirche is one of Leipzig’s top attractions and has a rich 800-year history, to say the least. Martin Luther used to lecture here, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart played the organ in the church, and Richard Wagner was baptised here. However, it is most famous as the church where Johann Sebastian Bach used to serve as a cantor for 27 years. The magnificent building is home to the master composer’s sarcophagus, and is a must visit when in Leipzig.
