Carillon (Glockenspiel)110 viewsThe town hall’s tower harbors the world famous carillon, which has existed since 1908. The figures of the carillon show parts of Munich’s history. A joust is displayed in the upper part which was arranged for the marriage of duke Wilhelm V. and Renata of Lothringen.

The lower part of the carillon shows a famous dance of Munich, the “Schäfflertanz”. It was arranged at the time of the plague (1515-1517) and has since been traditionally performed every 7th year in Munich.
