The organ manufacturing workshop, founded by Friedrich Rühlmann (1812 - 1878) in Zörbig, was maintained over generations by his sons Wilhelm Rühlmann I (1842 - 1922) and Theodor Rühlmann II (1847 - 1910) and Willhelm Rühlmann II (1882 - 1964), son of Wilhelm Rühlmann I, until 1945. The organ in Bad Düben is one of approx. 300 instruments made by "Orgelbau-Anstalt W.Rühlmann" (organ manufacturing facility of W.Rühlmann). Wilhelm Rühlmann I built his organ in 1907 behind the case of the previous organ from Johann Carl Friedrich Lochmann from 1819 as Opus 294. III/30. The instrument is played over pneumatic cone valve chests. In 2008, a complete restoration was completed.
