Divi Blasii Church in Mühlhausen

The main church in the lower part of the town was built in the 13th/14th century by the German Order as the first large Gothic church in Central Germany. Elements reminiscent of French cathedrals indicate its function as the bishopric church of Kristan von Samland, who was responsible for its construction. J. S. Bach was the organist here in 1707/1708. The building of the new organ in 1959 was based on Bach's "Orgel Disposition". Church and organ tours with demonstration of the organ can be arranged by Tourist Information, tel. 0 36 01 / 40 47 70 .
