Photo of the bells

The German Wikipedia article about the tower mentions the bells but gives no details.  The associated Wikimedia Commons category has many photos of the tower, but only the above photo of the bells.

The city page about the tower offers a panoramic view over the city, but says nothing about the bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of unknown bellfoundries, in this region and in the world.
