Audio Ouput:
Date Built:


The basilica of St. Lambertus is located in the very center of Düsseldorf’s historic old town. Over the years various organs have been installed in the church. The current instrument was built by Rieger (Austria). The main organ (Hauptorgel), with 54 voices, was built in 1999. It has 4 divisions (Grand Orgue, Positif, Récit, Pédale) assigned to 3 manuals and pedal, operated by tracker action. 5 years later, in 2004, a choir organ (Chororgel) was built, located on the right side of the altar. A fragment of a baroque organ cabinet was used in its façade. It has 3 sections: Grand Orgue, Récit and Pédale. Grand Orgue and Pédale are placed in the baroque cabinet, while Récit is located below, enclosed in a swell box. The baroque cabinet is open to two sides, i.e. the front section is on the right side of the altar, and the rear section is on the altar bypass.

In the main organ, the pedal towers (on both sides) contain the largest pipes of the GO Montre 16′ and other pedal flue stops. The largest Soubasse 32′ voice pipes are located at the back of the organ case. The Positif division is located behind the organist’s back, suspended from the choir balustrade. In the middle of the façade in the front, the Grand Orgue is located. Behind it sit pedal reed stops and behind them the Récit division is enclosed in a swell box.
