"Glockenspiel" Residenz and Residenzplatz Tip by mvtouring

Residenz and Residenzplatz, Salzburg: 64 reviews and 131 photos

You will find the carillon tower perched on top of the Residenz Neubau. The carillon was added later and was brought from the Netherlands in 1688. It was finally put in working order in 1702. The 35 bells play classical tunes at 7 AM, 11 AM, and 6 PM. From Easter to October, the bells are immediately followed by a resounding retort from the 200-pipe "Bull" organ housed in the Hohensalzburg Fortress.
Well worth listening out for these bells.

Address: Mozartpl. 1, Salzburg, Austria
