A Journey to Bach ... A Journey With Bach: the Most Exclusive and Also the Most Expensive "Bach Adventure"

 

Is it really the most expensive and the most exclusive Bach travel offer "in the world"? Why is that so? Actually, you should read the extended information first to get the sense behind the whole offer. In particular, if you think the price tag seems to be much too exorbitant. Just for those, who want to get a first impression ... fast ... you get three quick examples here.   ––

 

Your trip to the "Land of the Bache": You decide on the quality of the limousine or bus we rent. Of course, the above bus is a jewel. However, we would not want to implement your wish for this standard. And seriously, there is a difference between renting a noble limousine for six people and renting a new, modern minibus with air conditioning. Of course, we changed the license plate in the picture above for privacy reasons, the one above is that of my private car and I have no problems with it.   ––

 

Your journey to Bach: Explore, what's not there anymore ... the Bachhaus, which is the Bach House in English, in Weimar. Read more about that terrible situation around the Bachhaus there today.    ––

 


Besides the almost most expensive option of supporting our Bach Mission on this page of my Publishing House's website, there is an option that starts at just € 1 if you buy anything – not even music-related at all – from any vendor in the stores mentioned above ... here you can learn more about it ––

 

 


 

Example A: A Party of Six Persons, A Vacation of Six Days ... You Lodge High Standard ... It Is the "Moderate Cost" Option With This High-Priced Offer

 

Firstly, this is not a "moderate" option, but the moderate version among the three expensive proposals. Let's say you are a group of six people, you want to experience the "Land of the Bache" in six days, and you simply have the money to "buy" the company of the speaker of the Bach musical family and his wife. You are aware that this vacation will remain a lifelong highlight, and you are thus also willing to support the Johann Sebastian Bach Mission of us two Bachs from Flein in Southern Germany.  ––

You are right ... that – again – is no option to experience "Bach Country" with the two of us. But we found that vehicle so great, that we just couldn't hide it in our picture archive.   ––

 

 

* ... That could be much, much cheaper or ... Business class ... much, much more expensive.

** ... Such an event is – for instance – if we hire a musician to play on the pipe organ in the Bach church in Arnstadt for your company. You can skip these highlights, of course. 

*** ... Of course, it is more expensive when we "dine" in a star restaurant. And of course it can turn out more affordable.  ––

 

Of course, a night in a hotel like the one above is way more expensive than in an inn next to the Bachhaus and the Veit Bach Mill in Wechmar (... picture below). It's your decision, what we suggest for your trip. You may spend the night either high-end class or right in the middle and very authentic.   ––

 

The "Goldener Löwe", which is the "Golden Lion" (... the yellow building in the background). Of course, it's economy lodging, and you must prefer the originalism to spend your nights where once a Bach was living. In most cases, you can not have both.   ––

 

The Wachsenburg, which is sort of Wachsenburg Castle. Making the night an even more exciting adventure is – of course – linked to a higher lodging price tag. You tell us your expectations, we research for you and suggest a location.   ––

 

 


Example B: A Ten-Person Group, a Five-Day Vacation, You Lodge and Dine Economy ... The "Low Cost" Option

 

Firstly, we would like to remind you that this is not a favorable offer, but the most affordable of our three options. Let's just assume that you are a bunch of Bach enthusiasts, perhaps all members of the same Bach society, Bach choir or Bach orchestra, and you are aware that the cultural adventure of a lifetime together with a real Bach family member is a luxury you want to afford only once. But you just want it. For you – as such a group – this pricing model is perfect, because it allows you to book two different hotel room categories, even two different hotels.   ––

 

The Calculation for Example B (... Ten Persons, Five Days; Prices Include VAT)

 

Honorarium for both Bachs   € 6,000
Ten Flight Ticket Economy Class € 1,000 for 10 persons* € 10,000
Exclusive small Bus  € 800 per day for 5 days** € 4,000
Entrance fees, eight Bach locations € 15 per location for 10 Pers. € 1,200
Tour guides at six locations € 140 per location € 840
Special Events at five locations** € 200 per event € 1,000
Lodging in 3 stars hotels € 60 per person, 5 nights € 3,000
Breakfast is included in Germany € 0 € 0
Lunch is matching "no-lost-time-philosophy" € 10 per person for 5 days € 500
Dinner in goods restaurants € 30 per person for 5 days € 1,500
     
Total:   € 28,040

 

€ 28,040 ... divided by ten people is a price per person of ...  € 2.804

Sure, if you want to make each dinner on your Bach trip an additional event, maybe even at a one star or two-star chef location, the price tag will be closer to € 100 per dinner per person, compared to your preference to visit the "Bratwurst Museum" (... Brat Museum)as an additional "Non Bach Highlight". It's all up to you.   ––

 

It's quite an experience. Let's have a Thuringian Bratwurst in Weimar. So, it's no risk. We buy one, cut it, everybody has a sample and orders after that. One, and you are happy at lunchtime, two, and you are full. It's two Euro for one brat, and you spend the saved money instead in a castle for dinner. For those who don't like it, there is a butcher next door. And a bakery.   ––

 

Of course, we do know special places for our dinner. With us, the restaurant visit is no surprise in the matter of quality. So let's mix cool places and offers like the Bratwurst Museum and a high-end dinner at a noble place.    ––

 


Please support our Bach Mission (... just a final, little reminder, promise) … learn more.

 

 


Example C: A Party of Four Persons, A Vacation of Seven Days ... You Lodge and Dine High Standard ... The "Expensive" Option

 

This third example gives you an idea, what your budget should be, if you decide for this option. Please keep in mind, that our honorarium is the same, if you are a group of ten people or if you are only three individuals. Plus, there is no difference with that, whether we spend four days together or seven days. So what's the difference? We check upfront, where lodging and dining delivers the highest quality. In a relation to the time we need to get there. That comes with two restraints. First, we can only suggest the best hotel at our common Bach destination. If there just is no 5-star hotel, we have to be happy with a 4-star location. It's different, when you want to spend some of your precious time. Of course, we can search for a 5-star hotel – in our example – however, it might take a longer journey. The same is true with dining. 

 

 

The Calculation for Example C (... Four Persons, seven Nights; VAT is Included in the Prices)

 

Honorarium for both Bachs   € 6,000
Six flight tickets Economy Class € 1,000 for 4 persons* € 4,000
Rent of an exclusive small bus

€ 600 per day for 7 days

€ 4,200
Entrance fees ten Bach locations € 15 per locations for 4 persons € 600

Lodging in 4-star hotels € 200 per person for 7 nights € 5,600
Breakfast is included in Germany € 0 € 0
Lunch is matching  "no-lost-time-philosophy" € 10 per person for 7 days € 280
Dinner in upper class restaurants*** € 80 per person for 7 days € 2,240
