Christmas Concerts at St Thomas Kirch
I shall be in Leipzig over Christmas and would like to attend the Christmas Motet (24th) and the carols (20-22th) at St Thomas Kirch. Does one need to buy tickets ahead or is it like a typical church event open to everyone who gets there early enough?
If one just needs to be early, how early do we need to be?
If we need tickets, how do I order them?
RE: Christmas Concerts at St Thomas Kirch
From what I read on their website, tickets are 2 Euro. No reservation is possible, so if you're early you'll have a seat. How early?? Hopefully someone from Leipzig will tell you. For the special Christmas service at my church you have to be there at least one hour before service starts.
Travel Tips for Leipzig
St. Nicholas Church (Nikolaikirche)
This church was founded in about 1165. It has been a Protestant church since 1539.
Weekly prayers for peace were held here on Monday evenings throughout the 1980s, and these gradually developed into the Monday demonstrations against the GDR regime. In October 1989 these demonstrations attracted over 100,000 people, and started spreading to other East Germany cities, leading to the fall of the GDR and the reunification of Germany.
Model of Gohlis as it was in 1785
In one room of the Schiller House there is a model of the village of Gohlis as is was when Schiller stayed here.
It was a quiet farming village then, with just 45 farmhouses and about 450 inhabitants. There was lots of pasture and a large pond. It was about half an hour's walk from Leipzig at that time, and was a popular place for leisurely Sunday walks during the summer months.
During the nineteenth century Leipzig kept on growing, and soon Gohlis was just another district of the big city.
by bus (Eurolines). From...
by bus (Eurolines). From Vienna I took an overnight bus to Dresden and then a train (approx. an hour).
On foot or with bike, because it´s not that large.
Only when you want to see the 'Völkerschlachtdenkmal',too, you should maybe take a tram or a bike.
The Market Square is the central square in the Old Town, a few steps away from the train station. Till 19th century used to be the ground of executions like Woyzeck’s execution under axe in 1824 (Buchner wrote a stage play about the story 12 years later and become one of the most popular plays in german theatre). At the same period some demonstrations started here from local people that forced for their right to participate in municipal decisions.
In our days a lot of festival take place here like the City Festival or the Christmas Market. It used to be the ground place of the big book fair (Leipzig is famous for that) till it moved out of the center.
The most important building here is the Old City Hall(Altes Rathaus) (pic 1), a beautiful renaissance building. It was built in 1157 by Hieronymus Lotter. In 1672 a restoration take place and in 1744 the baroque tower added replacing the old one so to match with the towers of St.Nickolas and St.Thomas churches. At the ground floor you can see many shops with souvenirs, books, meissen porcelains, wine etc The Old City Hall houses (since 1909) the Museum of City History. It houses many items about medieval religious art, the Banquetting Hall (I like the fireplaces), the treasure chamber, the only authentic portrait of J.S.Back etc. The festival hall is used for concerts and exhibitions. The entrance fee is 3 euro but gives you access also to the new building of Museum of City History on Bottchergasschen 3 (Tuesday-Sunday 10.00-18.00) whre they have temporary exhibitions.
Hieronymus Lotter (1497-1580) also built the Old Weigh House (Alte Waage) on the north side of Market Square in 1555. The building (pic 2) used for trade-fair purposes and accommodated the Weigh Office on its grounded-floor.
On the south side of Market Squre you can see Konigshaus, an interesting cultural-historical monument. It was built in 1610 and renovated in 1707 by Gregor Fuchs for Andreas Dietrich Apel. The city council always used the building to accommodate famous guests. Napoleon had farewell to the King of Saxony from the bay window on the first floor.
The ride on the barrel - Auerbachs Keller
A must see activity for everyone who has read Goethe's Faust. I just had a look inside but couldn't have a look on the famous barrel because of a private party. In the passage at the entrance are two statues with the famous characters.
