Chimes in Germany:
index by year of completion

NOTE:   This list is not yet complete - many known instruments remain to be added.

For an explanation of our use of the tags BRD and DDR, see the long Note in the regional index overview page for this country.

The table below is an index to 86 existing German chimes and chime-sized instruments, in order by year of completion (to the current number of bells).  Instruments which were completed in the same year are listed in order by the city name without regard to the exact date on which the installation was finished.

After the year, a letter indicates that it is

C - when the complete instrument was installed, or a mixed peal was completed;
E - when the instrument was enlarged from its previous size;
R - when the instrument's range changed, but not its size.
(Replacements which did not change the range are not considered here.)
