by MichaelFalk1969

The Thomaskirche - built in 1212 - is one of the major Leipzig churches. The interior is decorated with beautiful stained-glass-windows, depicting Johann Sebastian Bach (who was from 1723-1750 chief organisator for church music in Leipzig), reformator Martin Luther (who preached in the Thomaskirche 1539) and Swedish King Gustav Adolf (who, because of his intervention in the 30-years war in Germany was regarded as the protector of the protestant faith). The famous boychoir of the Thomas-Kirche (Thomaner-Chor) has concerts every friday at 6 p.m. and every saturday at 3 p.m.
