None other but Karl Friedrich Schinkel provided the Zittauer Kirche with two dissimilar towers after the church´s destruction by Austrian brigades in 1757, which was for static reasons. Today´s sanctified organ from 1930 is the most significant preserved instrument dated back to the times between the World Wars and is considered as the most significant organ monument in Europe.
