My husband and I sort of stumbled upon this amazing shop and museum and didn't realize at first that it was also a foundry. We hit the jackpot when they invited us into the smelting area and explained that they were pouring bells for some churched in Croatia whose bells had been removed during the communist years. The process was... More

I was interested in visiting the bell factory since I have played hand bells. I was not disappointed. This factory provided much information on types of bells, materials bells are made of and how bells are made. There were different sizes of bells and we got to see a huge bell several feet taller than a man being made that... More

In the last 2 years we have visited the bell museum twice. There is something very special in discovering history through the eyes of a bell, or in this case many, many bells. We all loved the great range of bell sizes, designs, sounds, and uses on display. The interactive sound room was great fun. We picked up a good... More

The bell shop with the history of serving loyalty in Innsbruck, as is the case with other Austrian craftsmanship businesses. One of their staff showed me around the site where the bells are made, even though the door to the factory was signposted "no entry." He also had a good conversation with me. Entertained, this was certainly one of sweet... More
