The great organ of the cathedral was put in place in 1914, and in 1997 vas completely renovated. It is the largest organ in South-Eastern Europe.

In 1853, the Ferula was separated from the central part of the cathedral. A gallery containing 67 tombstones is located here. These tombstones are unique in Romania.

Until the middle of the 18 th century important people of Sibiu were buried here. It was banned in 1796, but there was an exception, that of the Baron Samuel von Brukenthal.

Some of the oldest tombstones are those of Georg Hecht (1496), Nicolaus Proll (1499) and that of Mihnea Voda the Evil (Mihnea Voda cel Rau) (1510) who was murdered in front of the cathedral.

The Ferula contains items like the old 1520 stone pulpit made by Andreas Lapicida, a 17 century marble font and the altar of Dobarca.
