From Leipzig: Vogtland Music Day Trip

3. From Leipzig: Vogtland Music Day Trip

Leipzig is a city of musical well-being, with Johann Sebastian Bach having worked there for decades as a composer, cantor, and director of the Thomanerchor. The Gewandhaus Orchestra is one of the best in its field, and it is there that Kapellmeister Felix Mendelsohn Bartholdy founded one of the most renowned music academies in Europe. Throughout your day tour, visit some of the musical instrument manufacturers or collectors around Carlsfeld, Klingenthal, and Markneukirchen. Bandonions are still being produced in Carlsfeld today, which give the Tango Argentino its unmistakable sound. Klingenthal delivers harmonicas and accordions all over the world, and in Markneukirchen you can find string and wind instrument manufacturers. Depending on the daily situation and availability, you can expect to visit 1 or 2 craftsmen. Outside of that, dig into Vogtland culture and its culinary delights. Encounter the Vogtland Arena — a modern ski jump — and if you still have time, take an excursion to the chic Bad Elster or Morgenröthe-Rautenkranz.

The tour leads you very well through everything worth seeing in Weimar. And with the info cards you can really learn something! One should take the trouble to read through. I can also recommend buying the 48h Weimar Card beforehand. So you can look directly into interesting museums (Goethe House, Schiller House, ...). Unfortunately, the tour begins at the furthest possible point from the tourist center.

The scavenger hunt is very nice and fun. Unfortunately there was a question about the cathedral, which we could not solve because the cathedral was in the process of renovation. I think that should be checked here at regular intervals whether the tasks are still up to date. Otherwise it was really nice.

The scavenger hunt was a nice walk to get your bearings in the city. Good to get there!
