Closeup view of the bells

The German Wikipedia article about the town mentions the glockenspiel and offers an audio track (2:10).

The Wikimedia Commons category for the town is very large; the subcategory for the building has the above photo plus five photos of the building.

The city Website has nothing significant to say about these bells, and its history page doesn't even mention the Neues Rathaus.

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