Reviews of St. Thomas Church • 1
This Lutheran church is where classical maestro Bach worked as a choirmaster until his death in 1750. Built in the 12th century, this church is a classic example of Gothic architecture. There is also a statue of Bach next to the church made by Leipzig Sculpture, Carl Sefner in 1908. Martin Luther preached here in 1539. Visitors flock here to not only watch with awe the beautiful interiors(lined with Gothic paintings) and architecture, but also attend the services and to hear the concerts by various choirs.(Considering it once housed the school of Bach) The church has survived various bomb attacks and efforts are being made to preserve it from deterioration from air pollution.
