So close to the music! Heinrich Schütz is undisputedly considered the first German composer of European standing.

The Heinrich-Schütz-Haus Weißenfels is the only originally preserved residence of the composer.

So close to the music! Heinrich Schütz is undisputedly considered the first German composer of European standing. In the Heinrich Schütz House in Weißenfels, the composer himself reports from his life and takes his listeners on a wonderful journey through time. The court conductor of Saxony had spent the rest of his life here. His great late works were written in the composer's room. The most valuable treasure here are two fragments of music by the composer's hand that were found in the house. The exhibition - which is located in the master's only originally preserved house - makes his work come alive in a multifaceted and sensual way.

In addition to historical musical instruments, valuable original early prints of his works are on display. 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. An architectural and archaeological discovery trail draws attention to valuable structural details and finds. The implementation of this claim has been outstandingly successful, as confirmed by the international "Iconic Award" in 2014. And perhaps you too will be inspired to sing along at this special place by the singing, sounding music stand?

Guided tours of the house are available in German and on request also in English and Italian.
