Gallery: Level 1

1st Level within Organ Case – the Level of Pedal and Manual II

The images have been taken at different times with slightly different situations of the building resp. instrument. The images render a virtual tour from South to North, corresponding to Level 1 on the orientation image. In 2011 a reflector wall has been installed behind Man. II. Some images are older and show the free views onto the back wall of the church.
