A Journey to Bach ... A Journey With Bach. The Most Exclusive and Most Expensive "Bach Adventure"

 

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 is too exorbitant. Just for those, who want to get a first impression ... fast ... you get two quick examples here.

 

Your journey in "Bach Country": You decide about the quality of the limo or the bus we hire. Of course, the bus above is a treasure. However, we wouldn't accept your desire for that standard. And seriously: There is a difference between hiring a stretched limo for six people or a new A/C equipped, modern small bus. Of course, we changed the license plate in the picture above for data protection reasons, the one above is the one of my personal car and I have no problems with that.

 

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 today.

 

Aside of the most expensive option to support our Bach mission on this page of my publishing house's website, there is an option that starts as low as € 1, if you buy anything – even not related to the subject of music – from any supplier in the shops above … learn more.

 


Example A: A Party of 6 Persons, A Vacation of 6 Days ... You Lodge High Standard ... The "Moderate Cost" Option

 

First, it's not a moderate cost option, it's the moderate version among the three expensive suggestions. Just let's assume, you are a party of 6, you want to experience "Bach Country" in 6 days, and you just have the money to "buy" the company of the speaker of the Bach family of musicians and his wife. You are aware, that this vacation will remain a lifetime highlight, and you are willing to support the Johann Sebastian Bach Mission of both Bachs from Flein in Germany.

 

The Calculation for Example A

 

Honorarium for the Bachs € 5,000 € 5,000
Flight Ticket Economy Class € 1,000 per person* € 6,000
Exclusive small Bus / Stretched Limo € 500 per day/person** € 3,000
Entrance fees 10 Bach locations € 20 per person € 160
Tour guides at 10 Locations € 100 per event € 1,000
Special events at 5 locations*** € 200 per event* € 1,000
Lodging in the upper class segment € 100 per person, 6 nights € 4,800
Breakfast is included in Germany € 0 € 0
Lunch is matching the no-lost-time-goal € 15 per person, 6 days € 480
Dinner in upper class restaurants € 30 per person, 6 days  € 1,440
     
Total:   € 24,800
     
€ 24,800 : 6 persons is the following price per person:   € 3,110

You are right ... That – again – is no option to experience Bach Country with the 2 of us. But we found that vehicle so great, that we just couldn't hide it in our picture archive.

 

*... You might buy it for € 700.

**... That can be lower, if you decide for the bus

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

 

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 originalness to spend your nights where once a Bach was living. In most cases, you can not have both.

 

The Wachsenburg, which is 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 10-Person Group, a 5-Day Vacation, You Lodge High Economy - The "Low Cost" Option

 

Upfront, a small reminder: It's not actual "low cost", it's the low-cost version of our three options. Just let's assume, you are a bunch of Bach enthusiasts, maybe all members in the same Bach society, Bach choir or Bach orchestra, and you are well aware, that having the cultural adventure of your life together with a real Bach family member is a luxury, which you want to afford one time only. However, you just want it. For you – as such a group – this price model is perfect, as it allows to book two different hotel room categories, even two different hotels. Please realize, that this calculation is not based on high standard lodging, but on "high economy". 

 

The Calculation for Example B

 

Honorarium for the Bachs € 5,000 € 5,000
Flight Ticket Economy Class € 800 per person* € 4,000
Exclusiv small Bus / Stretched Limo € 400 per day/person** € 2,000
Entrance fees 10 Bach locations € 20 per person € 160
Tour guides at 7 Locations € 100 per event € 700
Special Events at 5 locations*** € 200 per event* € 1,000
Lodging in the upper class segment € 60 per person, 5 nights € 1,500
Breakfast is included in Germany € 0 € 0
Lunch is matching the no-lost-time-goal € 15 per person, 4 days € 375
Dinner in upper class restaurants € 20 per person, 5 days  € 500
     
Total:   € 15,235
     
€ 15,235 : 6 persons is the following price per person:   € 1,523

Check here, what's that in your currency, today.



 

*... It could cost you more, it depends on your ability to shop flight tickets.

**... We believe, a bus would do, but you could upgrade just for fun.

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

 

Sure, if you want to make each dinner on your Bach trip an additional event, maybe even at a 1 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" as an additional "non Bach event". 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 € 2 for one Bratwurst, 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 dinner 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 4 Persons, A Vacation of 7 Days ... You Lodge and Dine High Standard ... The "Expensive Cost" 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 10 people or if you are only two individuals. Plus, there is no difference with that, whether we spend 4 days together or 7 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

 

Honorarium for the Bachs € 5,000 € 5,000
Flight Ticket Economy Class € 800 per person* € 4,000
Exclusiv small Bus / Stretched Limo € 400 per day/person** € 2,000
Entrance fees 10 Bach locations € 20 per person € 160

Lunch is matching the no-lost-time-goal € 15 per person, 4 days € 375
Dinner in upper class restaurants € 20 per person, 5 days  € 500
