The Bressanone (or Brixen, in German spelling) organ was built from 1756 to 1758 – started by Augustin Simnacher until his death in 1757 and finished by Joseph Antoni Simnacher (Simnacher’s son) and Alexander Holzhey (Simnacher’s son-in law). The case was built by Ferdinand Schwabl and sculpted by Konrad Wizer, according to a design by Simnacher.

In 1980 a new instrument was inaugurated inside the original case of the Simnacher organ, after a reconstruction by Johann Pirchner.
