German trace in Baku
Why locals love it
The German Lutheran Church was constructed between 1895 and 1898. The architect was a German named Eikhler who based his design on the Gothic style. It was converted into a music recital hall during the Soviet period, a role which it still serves today.
Why you should visit it
In 1910 a pipe organ was installed and evening organ performances in the church became a tradition. Fortunately, the church was not demolished during the Soviet period. Today, the building is still known for its fine acoustics and continues to be used as a recital hall, primarily for chamber orchestra concerts and organ recitals.
Most performances in the church are free of charge.
