The fortified church of “Urphar” has a nice-sounding organ. The organ was built in Marktheidenfeld in 1780 by Johann Conrad Wehr. The case of the organ is made of raw pine wood and equipped with fine rococo carvings. The playful curlicues form a vivid contrast to the simple beam structure.

The “Free State of Bavaria” is renowned for being culturally unique and for the emphasis which it places on preserving its heritage and traditions. It is also extraordinarily beautiful, boasting a plethora of castles, palaces, cathedrals, abbeys and monasteries not to mention spectacular scenery. Bavaria is more than Alps, men in “lederhosen” (leather pants), women in “dirndl” (traditional dresses) and frothy glasses of beer by the “maβ” (liter).
