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

Very interesting bell factory. Apparently, it is world famous. The museum is very small. There is an entrance fee. There is a large collection of tools and bells indoors and outdoors.

Small but comprehensive and informative. Learned something new and now appreciate the technical innovation and craftsmanship that this firm has developed over the centuries. Not a bell person but surprised that I now am!

An interesting little place all about bells. You can see the foundry through windowed doors and there are lots and lots of bells to see and an attempt to show you how bells are made... as well as a few to ring! It's only a few small rooms and an outside area and there isn't a lot of helpful information... More

We now have a new-found appreciation for bell manufacturing and bell ringing having visited this working museum. You get to learn how bells are made and why they sound the way they do, plus a ring a few bells as well.

I did this on the last day of my 2-week visit to Innsbruck. I read that they charge 50 euros for a tour of the bell foundry, but why pay when you can look through a glass wall into the foundry and get into the museum for free with the Innsbruck Card? I saw a "singing" bowl being made, and... More
