In the church of Waltershausen you see the biggest baroque organ in Thuringia. It was built by Tobias Heinrich Gottfried Trost till 1730, but was finished by an unknown organ builder. She is about 8 m high and broadly and has more than 2800 whistles which are still the originals to 70%. She is unique also in her sound.
From 1995 till May, 1998 the organ was restored by the organ building company of Waltershausen.
That concerts therein the church are unique!
They mean that on no other organ it is to play and sound Bach better.
