Do I have to take a factory tour to tryout horns? Mostly interested in buying a flugel horn.
Do they also have a gift shop?
Anyone know if they are open to the public right now?

My understanding is it has always been customary to arrange tours through your Bach dealer in advance. They are a factory after all, so keeping out of the way and safety comes first. I’m unaware of a gift shop since my last visit, but I’m sure they’d have something in the way of t-shirts or such. Reach out to your dealer and let them know you are interested in selecting an instrument at the Bach factory would be my suggestion.

Here's a link to the company store (online) for various Bach branded gear.

In October, I arranged a visit through my dealer. I was able to request the models I wanted to try, and for the most part, they were available. There was no tour, though I probably could have if I had wanted. I did not see a gift shop either.

For tryouts, they have a sound proof room, with the available horns available just outside said room for you to try pretty much at your leisure. Because of this, they generally only schedule 1-2 visitors per day, so planning ahead is necessary.
