Munich | The Glockenspiel building... - Secret World

Marienplatz 8, 80331 München, Germania

by Maya Wilde


The Glockenspiel building in Germany was finalised in around 1900 by architect Georg Hauberrisser. From March to October the clock will ring daily at 11am, noon and 5pm, with a 12-minute show consisting of 43 bells and 32 life-sized figures. The show tells the story of the wedding of the Duke Wilhelm V and Renata of Lorraine, the jousting tournament and the traditional coopers dance.
