TOUR BRANDENBURG

BRANDENBURG – POTSDAM, 90 KM

SEPTEMBER 11 – 12, 2021

Cooperation with Kulturfeste im Land Brandenburg e.V.

Registration is now open!

For the first time, Bach by Bike is taking a short trip to Brandenburg: in 1747, Johann Sebastian Bach travelled to Potsdam to visit Frederick The Great. On Bach´s footsteps in Brandenburg we cycle in two stages between Schuke- and Wagner-organs from Brandenburg an der Havel to Potsdam. You can book the days separately as day-trips or in combination with a stay at Schwielowsee/Werder as a 2-day-trip.

 

DAY 1. Brandenburg a. d. Havel – Lehnin – Werder, 40 km

We meet at the Dome Brandenburg an der Havel. Here organist Marcell Fladerer will guide us through the sounds of the famous Wagner-organ from 1722. It is one of the most significant baroque organs of Germany. To start the tour, the Bach by Bike Ensemble will play a short concert together with Mr. Fladerer afterwards. We will continue the tour at the largest church of Brandenburg, St. Katharinen: here an organ concert and guided tour of the Schuke-organ awaits us.

After a lunch break, we mount our bikes and cycle 18 km to the monastery church Lehnin. Kantor Gerhard Oppelt will welcome us with an organ concert at the former Cistercians Church. You can explore the 12th century building listening to organ works by J. S. Bach.

After a coffee break, we will ride the second stage of the day to Werder. Here you have the opportunity to stay at the beautifully situated Precise Resort Schwielowsee and to continue with the second day of our tour to Potsdam. Day-guests leave from station Werder by train.

 

Day 2: Werder – Potsdam, 27 km

Meeting point for day-guests is station Werder at 9.30 am. In the morning we visit the traditional organ-workshop of Company Schuke at Werder. We will get to know in detail how an organ is built. Afterwards we cycle along the Havel cycling route to a coffee break at hand weaving workshop Geltow. Refreshed we start off to the final stage to Potsdam. Here Andreas Kitschke will guide us along Bach´s traces through the city, including an organ concert at French Church. With an evening concert of the Bach by Bike Ensemble at Atrium of Friedenskirche at the Park Sanssouci we end the tour.

You can depart from the main station Potsdam by train.
