    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Highlight of the church interior is the organ, built in 1722 by Tobias Heinrich Gottfried Trost. It dominates the church and is known to be the most important and largest organ from the time of JS Bach in Thüringen. Trost was known to be the most important innovator and avant-garde organ builder, as well as the most important Thüringer organ builder in the time of JS Bach. About 70% of the pipe-work is original.

    The church is open free of charge, every day from 10-12 and 14-16 hrs.
