Thuringia
Arnstadt
Arnstadt The Essential
This small Thuringian town dating back to the 8C is known mainly for the fact that Bach lived there from 1703 to 1707 when he was organist at the parish church. The town's historical museum exhibits mementoes of the composer. Toy-lovers should visit the New Palace with its rich collection of dolls, not forgetting its Brussels tapestries from the Renaissance period and the collection of porcelain from Meissen and the Far East.
