On the city Website, there is a page about these bells.

The German Wikipedia article about the building has a photo of it, and mentions the Glockenspiel in the text (but does not describe it).  The peal of four bells, located in the belfry below the clock, is described.

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