Schmeisser organ in the mountain church of Beucha

Short facts

The church of Beucha can be seen from far away on the 147-metre-high Kirchberg.

Surrounded on three sides by the water of the former quarry, the rock pulpit behind the church is also a charming vantage point into the flat Leipzig countryside. In 1931, Alfred Schmeisser (1902-1945) from Rochlitz built a new organ into the existing case, replacing the worn-out previous organ. The church and organ were badly damaged by bombing in March 1945. It was not until 1949 that services could be celebrated again. The organ shines with 17 stops (8-6-3).
