Concerts in the wedding church of J.S. Bach in Dornheim

On the 17th October 1707 Johann Sebastian Bach married his second cousin, Maria Barbara Bach in Dornheim Church. It has been handed down that the wedding guests walked over stubble fields from Arnstadt to Dornheim, during which they joined hands and sang amusing songs. Both the organ and the furnishings of the church were very simple. From his marriage with Maria Barbara he had seven children, among them the most famous Bach sons, Friedemann and Philipp Emanuel. Maria Barbara died aged 36 years in Köthen.

Throughout the year there are various concerts, readings and walking tours in Dornheim.
