Organ Agnita

The organ in the church of Agnita was built in 1850 by Carl Schneider. It is partially functional, but an overhaul and some repairs are necessary to keep the instrument playable. It is one of the most beautiful and significant organs in the wider area and the goal is to integrate it into a tourist concept for the region.
