The DGV page about this instrument has no photos; details are incomplete.

The Wikimedia Commons category for the building has several photos of the tower.  There is a sub-category for these bells, which has photos of the tower, the keyboard and the roll player, and several audio files of various tunes.  Unfortunately, none appear to include an hour strike, which might verify the apparent existence of a much larger hour bell inside the belfry.

The German Wikipedia article about the building has current and historic photos, and mentions the bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Rincker bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
