Divi Blasii Church

Divi Blasii Church (Church of St. Blasius) is the main church (Hauptkirche) in Mühlhausen's district Unterstadt. It was built in the 13th and 14th centuries by the German Order (Deutscher Orden) and was the first big church in Gothic style in central Germany. Elements of its architectural style are the same as those used in French cathedrals and thus reveal that it once may have been used as the bishopric seat of Kristans von Samland, who had initiated the building of a new church there. Later, in 1707/1708, Johann Sebastian Bach worked in the church as organist.
Its new organ, built in 1959, followed Bach's organ arrangements. For tours of the church with examples of organ music please contact Tourist-Information, Tel. 0049 (0) 3601 40477-0.
