Classical structure but crazy decoration, both the chapel and the organ.

I think the simmetrical view works well here. The guy in the composition I like too -It makes the end of the view curious :)

the only set of Spanish Trumpets in a pipe organ outside of Spain is built into the 1969 Rieger instrument in Marienstatt. If you are an Organ Expert and player try to find Fater Gregor for an appointment. A phantastic musical instrument last updated and newly intonated by Georg Jann in 2016.

More photos of the organ later...

Brillant shot of the trompeteria, that dates back to 1732 (the date seems to be engraved on one of the pavilions; the rest of the organ is by Rieger, 1970). You will notice that the short trumpet pipes (of the Bajoncillo, 4 foot pitch) get replaced by twin flue pipes in the treble region, one souding one octave above the longer one (i.e. 4' + 2' pitch) to lend enough brilliance.
I'd definitely like to play there. The instrument was somewhat "mythic" in the seventies, and visited by many a foreign Organist. I think I have records by Jean Langlais there.

Lille, St Pierre & St Paul. Erwin Müller, 195x. No organ case, just a heap of pipes. Not bad at all though. The local organist is very good too.

Another extravagant Klais organ ?

the website says: "Die Orgel aus dem Jahr 1958 ist die erste mechanische Orgel, die die Bonner Orgelbaufirma Johannes Klais nach dem 2. Weltkrieg baute. Die Orgel hat eine neobarocke Disposition, verteilt auf zwei Manuale und 25 Register im Hauptwerk und Rückpositiv. Die Spieltraktur ist mechanisch, die der Register elektrisch. Die Art der Windlade ist als Schleiflade konzipiert. Im Rahmen der Sanierung 2011 wurde die Orgel vollständig überarbeitet und gereinigt."

The great Markussen organ in "Vor frue kirke" in Copenhagen from 1995 with 87 voices.
Post-processed in LR, picture is taken from the flor, and the organ is very high up ;)

Düsseldorf, Neanderkirche. Rieger 1965. A "modern" organ without compromizes, on which Almut Rössler (1932-2015, and organist at the nearby Johanneskirche) recorded the complete organ works of Olivier Messiaen, and Oskar Gottlieb Blarr (*1934) works by Bartok and Mussorgski (yessss, pictures at an exhibition).

The organ case is not exactly "beautiful", and is in stark contrast with the XVIIth century church, in typical calvinist arrangement : pulpit and altar at the long side, galleries on the three other sides. Musically, it is overwhelming and elegant at the same time, singing and percussive (also with the help of the four horizontal trumpet and clarion stops).

I have listened to its voice on records for more than forty years. Live on the 27th, for the first time.

I've never knew that Bartok wrote pieces for organ...  Thank you for the reminder.
