Guided tour through the time of Heinrich Schütz

The Heinrich-Schütz-House is the only originally preserved house of the composer. Schütz acquired it in 1651 as his retirement home and lived here until shortly before his death in 1672. The exhibition presents the life and work of the composer on three floors. The highlight is the restored composer's room, where Schütz created his late works. The most valuable treasure presented here are two fragments of music by the composer's hand that were found in the house. In addition to historical musical instruments, the museum displays valuable original early prints of his works. Numerous sound samples, media stations and films give visitors a concise impression of Heinrich Schütz's compositional style. Adults and children can meet the elderly composer himself: In fictional radio plays, Heinrich Schütz recalls important stations in his life.

The Renaissance house was extensively renovated in 2010-2011. An architectural and archaeological discovery trail draws attention to valuable structural details and finds. Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672) Heinrich Schütz is undisputedly considered the most important German composer of the 17th century. Born in Köstritz, Thuringia, he spent his childhood and youth in Weißenfels and as a choirboy in Kassel. After studying music in Venice, he became Court Kapellmeister in Dresden. The composer's path through life took him all over Europe as far as Denmark and Italy. He was the most important mediator of Italian music in German-speaking countries. With his work he influenced Lutheran church music.
