“Memorial Plaque”

In 1946, the organist of the City Church of St. Peter and Paul, Johannes Ernst Köhler, led the initiative to hang a plaque in memory of Bach’s house (it is not hung in exactly the right place – it belongs about 15 metres to the left).
Here stood the house in which JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH lived from 1708 – 1717. FRIEDEMANN BACH was born here on 17 November 1710 PHILIPP EMANUEL BACH was born here on 8 March 1714
