Carillon, Berlin

Carillon - Berlin, Germany
John-Foster-Dulles Allee, Berlin, Germany 10557Map
The House of World Cultures
Neighborhood: Tiergarten

This is not necessarily a sight to see, but rather a sound to hear. When Berlin celebrated its 750th anniversary in 1987, the city gave itself a special present. If you're in the Tiergarten park or up on the roof of the Reichstag, you'll be able to hear it at midday and at 6pm. Following the sounds with your eyes, you may be able to see the 42-metre tower, clad in sparkling granite and with an elegant wing-shaped roof. This is the Carillon, designed by musicologist Jeffery A. Bossin. With 68 bells chiming in four octaves, this is the forth largest carillon in the world and the biggest in Europe.
