Whenever you hear a bell bong with sonorous resonance throughout Tirol, it might have come from Innsbruck where bronze bells of all shapes and sizes have been cast since 1599. Discover the Grassmayr Family’s centuries-old bell-making tradition and find out why their craftsmanship team consists of metalworkers, electricians, carpenters, casters and sculptors. Their “Bell Museum” is a unique combination of bell foundry, bell museum, sound room and watching a bell actually being cast. You can learn about the history of bell making and have a go at ringing bells to achieve different notes in the sound room. This unique concept has been awarded the “Austrian Museum Prize” by the Austrian Department for Culture and the “Maecenas Prize” by the Austrian Broadcasting Company (ORF). The best award, however, is the recognition that comes from the enthralled visitors.
