every two years in June (2020/2022)

The festival held in Thuringia’s smallest “Bach city” continues to be an insider tip on central Germany’s music scene. Since the festival’s first edition in June 2010, visitors are constantly impressed by the intimate atmosphere of the concerts taking place in the town where Bach spent his early youth. Fittingly, the Bachtage regularly involves local children and adolescents in its programme, which is also characterised by choir concerts and cantata services given by singers and musicians from the region. Performances by well known artists and ensembles similarly add a high degree of artistic quality for patrons to experience at authentic locations from Bach’s youth.
