1461, Former church, today organ museum
Jul 2013 • Solo
1461-1471 It was originally the Franciscan monastery church, most likely built from remains of the former Ducal "Meierhof" (homestead). The monastery was abrogated in 1803 due to the Bavarian secularisation, the late Gothic church was deconsecrated and its Interior publicly auctioned off. In the Baroque period the Church was transformed and got new frescoes, one of these (inside of the choir arch) depicting "the last judgment" was uncovered during renovation works in 1953 and must date back to 1490. In the Church with secularized convent at the cloisters the barrel organ museum was established: playable externally renovated historic monumental organs from Bruck in the Oberpfalz and Geiselhöring (pneumatic instruments) as well as Allersdorf and Köfering (mechanical work). The instruments were coordinated for concert performances in conjunction with several organs, more historical organs will follow. If you attend a concert you can notice the different souunds of various organs.
