*Links:

The church Website has photos of the towers in several places, but former photos of the bells have disappeared.

The German Wikipedia article about the town has a photo of the church and a paragraph about the glockenspiel of 29 bells; there are also 6 swinging bells (possibly they are in separate towers).  Although it describes what seems to be a baton keyboard, there is no place for such a keyboard in the smaller tower; possibly it is a hybrid system.

A page about the bells has 1 photo of the tower.

A contact page for the church has a different photo of the building.
