The Obere Pfarre organ was built from 1758 to 1760 by Johann Christian Köhler and the case was designed and manufactured by sculptor Johann Valentin Scholl.

In 1926 the organ was reconstructed by Steinmeyer, using 5 registers from the old organ, and in 1995 the instrument was again rebuilt by Eisenbarth. In this reconstruction several registers from other organs were used, such as pipes from the Steinmeyer Epistle organ from Passau. Because of this extensive reuse, little stops needed to be built from scratch.

Currently the organ has 60 registers with mechanical key traction and electrical stop action.
