Rühlmann organ at the St. Nicholas parish church in Bad Düben

The organ building workshop founded by Friedrich Rühlmann (1812–1878) remained in operation under the leadership of his sons Wilhelm Rühlmann I (1842–1922) and Theodor Rühlmann II (1847–1910) and Wilhelm Rühlmann II (1882–1964), son of Wilhelm Rühlmann I, until 1945. The organ in Bad Düben is one of about 300 instruments built by the company “Orgalbau-Anstalt W. Rühlmann”. In 1907, Wilhelm Rühlmann I built this organ, his 294th, behind the case of the previous organ built in 1819 by Johann Carl Friedrich Lochmann. III/30. The instrument is controlled via pneumatic cone valve windchests. A major restoration took place in 2008.
