In the west choir of the Gothic cathedral, the large organ impresses with its 5184 pipes and 66 registers, four manuals and pedal. Only the mighty organ façade is preserved from the Baroque cathedral organ completed in 1718 by Heinrich Herbst the Younger and his son.
With its exceptionally steep architecture, it is one of the greatest and most impressive achievements of Baroque organ building in the North German organ landscape. The organ façade, richly decorated with figures, is unique in Saxony-Anhalt with its extraordinary size next to the façade of the Merseburg Cathedral organ.
Also unique is the equipment with three gaming tables, of which the two side tables have been preserved in their original baroque condition to this day. The valuable baroque façade urgently needs to be renovated and the organ renewed.
