Organs in the Leipzig Region

Incredible Music in sacred halls

The playing and building of organs in Germany has been recognised by UNESCO as intangible cultural heritage. In Saxony alone, you can find around 2,500 organs, of which more than 150 are historical instruments.

Every year, countless music lovers from Germany and abroad are inspired by the technical and musical diversity of the organs in the Leipzig regionFamous organ builders such as Silbermann, Hildebrandt, Kreutzbach and Ladegast left behind wonderful treasures that Johann Sebastian Bach himself said he "acknowledged and praised as ably and solidly made".

Many of these instruments have undergone extensive restoration and reconstruction work in recent decades, preserving these unique treasures from  four centuries of organ music.

Luther Trail Saxony

The Luther Trail in Saxony offers the opportunity to discover how the changes of the Reformation left their mark on the construction and design of Protestant churches.
Luther introduced the word ‘gastfrei’ (hospitable) to the German language. He always gave this advice to his students: "Hospitality is at home wherever there is a church". You can find out more about this here.
