Like you prefer it: Wechmar is the Bach place or Wechmar or the Bach Ancestral Community. The town sign above is not quite up to date, because there is no longer a municipality Günthersleben-Wechmar. Wechmar is in the meantime a district of Drei Gleichen.
From everybody outside the United States and all English-speaking nations: "bogo" is "buy one, get one free!" Next: the Bach Ancestral Home (Bach Stammhaus) and the Veit Bach Mill in the Bach place of Wechmar are located just six minutes drive from the Autobahn 4, respectively the interstate 4 or the motorway 4. What does this mean? It means that you, if you are on a trip in "Bach Country" might easily squeeze in Wechmar. And there you definitely don't have to look for a parking space.
Wechmar is of a special importance for the Bach history. A trip to the Bach homeland should include a side trip to Wechmar.
