We didn't think we were going to be able to see the Glockenspiel but our lunch took a little longer than we expected and we were there at around 3 pm so we wandered across the street from Zehnder's to see it.
The Glockenspiel tells the story of the Pied Piper of Hamlin, a rather creepy story about a ratcatcher who strikes a bargain with the villagers of Hamlin to take away the rats in exchange for a fee. He lures them away with his pipe, the rats drown and he asks for his fee. When the villagers renege on their promise he leads all of the children away, except for one blind child and one lame child who go back to the village and tell them what has happened to the children. The children are never seen again.
You can hear the legend of the pied piper at 11 a.m., noon, 3, 5, 6, 9 and 10 p.m. each day at the Bavarian Inn. The Glockenspiel was built in Germany and installed in 1967.
