The Heroes’ Organ (“Heldenorgel”) at Kufstein Fortress is the largest free-standing organ in the world. It was built in 1931 by organ builder Oskar Walcker in the Citizens’ Tower at Kufstein Fortress to commemorate the dead of World War I. The original organ had two manuals. Extensive alterations were made to the organ in 1971, with the addition of a third and fourth manual; the organ then had 46 stops and 4,307 pipes. In 2009, the organ was comprehensively refurbished and extended to 65 stops and 4,948 pipes. The sound created by this magnificent organ can be heard throughout the town. The organ is played daily at 12 noon to honour the war dead and to remind of peace. The play can be heard throughout the whole town and the surrounding areas.
