The German Wikipedia article about the city mentions that the glockenspiel was acquired in 1963, but has no details about the building.

In this photo of the marketplace, the bells are visible on the wall of the Altes Rathaus.

The Website of the city opens with a large photo of the building, but it only mentions that the glockenspiel rings twice a day.

A tourism page has two photos of the building.

The city tourism Website (in 3 languages) has a page about the building, with more photos.

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