You better don't speed through Andisleben. And you just don't do that not to get a ticket. No, you better do so, because you left this little place faster than you have entered it. 576 residents. But that changes every once in a while, and Wikipedia does not keep up with the precise number every year. The community center is the next to the church on a place with a butcher truck, if this truck is present. And here's a little warning for photographers on the hunt for nice pictures: the streets that I drove, were dead ends in 63.54 % without the option of turning your car. So if you meet a small group of kids, which I did, you meet them more than once. One time when you drive forward, one time when you are back. And that is true for every lane while you look for possibilities to portray that community. However: there are some motives, which are rewarding. In the village at the so called "Andislebener Kreuz", which is the "Andisleben Intersection". To the residents of Andisleben: I felt very welcome in your likable community, and all to whom I talked were absolutely nice to me. It is just, I am a joker and I found it so funny, how I was looking for all those places, after I made the little show, the text was narrated (... I just got the information from the internet and didn't want to wait until I was there. That is to say, I made the text for the show even before I visited Andisleben, that is how I am.). And I learned that the butcher is a small truck and the grocery store is sort of hidden. Your community is probably where my roots lead to as well. So please don't be bothered, Andislebeners. A real big surprise will follow in two years or so. Promise.

Two Bach places are absolutely Bach places in a category D. That means you learn more about two locations which are not, absolutely not related to Johann Sebastian Bach in person.
Gehren is the place, where Johann Sebastian Bach's first wife lived before she moved to Arnstadt and later married. Her father, Johann Michael Bach, was a relative of Johann Sebastian Bach and locally well-known as a composer too. And as there is a memorial for him in Gehren and Gehren is mentioned in every biography about the icon of music (JSB), it is another and the final exception to the rule to list Gehren - when it comes to Bach cities and Bach places.
