The Thomaskirche was very high on my list of reasons for visiting Leipzig. We attended a concert, featuring the famous choir, which was wonderful. JS Bach's presence, including his resting place, is felt throughout the church and the city.

Hi, unfortunately no. According to their website there isn't much to do during the week. Services are on Sundays and much of the action are on Saturdays... It's a shame. Cheers Carl
