    "Glocken Dorf Tirol" - Waidring in PillerseeTal

A warm welcome to the "Glockendorf Tirol"


Important Information

Dear guests,
As you have probably already heard from the media, Tyrolean tourism, along with its service providers, is facing an extremely challenging situation that has so far been unknown to us, and which unfortunately also does not exclude our company. We therefore have to inform you today that we have to close our company on Monday, March 16, 2020, midnight (based on an official order) until April 13, 2020. This measure is of course fully supported by us. THE SAFETY AND HEALTH OF THE POPULATION, EMPLOYEES AND GUESTS HAVE TOP PRIORITY FOR US.

We therefore hope to see you again as soon as possible and of course keep you up to date. We are still available for you by phone and email.


 

A revived tradition

Bell casting has a long tradition in Waidring, even today, two of three full-time bell foundries in Tirol can be found here. With "Glockendorf" (The Bell Village) this important village identity has been carefully considered and a new experience for locals and guests has been created. The exhibition of "Glockenwelt" (The Bell World) was opened in Autumn 2019. In the summer of 2020, the Bell Adventure Trail will follow. The Bell casting and guided tours can be reserved in the tourist office or with the "Glockendorf Tirol" society. We look forward to welcoming you the village of the Bells here in Waidring in the Pillersee Valley, Tirol.

Experience the world of Bells

The futuristic looking BIATRON in the car park of the lift company, Waidring / Steinplatte accommodates the exhibition "Glockenwelt" (The Bell World) and is the starting point for the Bells Adventure path. In the gigantic dome, not only can the great bells be admired. Here you can also learn about the purpose that the bells had specifically in the Alpine region and from which customs have developed. This is the reason why Waidring has two of the three bell foundries in Tirol.

To the exhibition

The Bell Adventure path

Opening: in the summer of 2020

You can learn the history of bell casting at various points along the path. You will find out about the specifics of the Waidringer bell foundries and all sorts of interesting anecdotes. The historic bell foundry house, where the first ‘Lugmaier’ bell was cast, must not be missed. Neither is the Waidringer parish church, which is well known to bells lovers for the considerable peal of ‘five bells’.

The Casting process

At the casting you will experience close-up, the feel, smell and how hot it can get. From the creation of the sand mould to the casting itself is very fine work. Visitors learn the theory and then can practice the casting themselves. The self-cast bell can be taken home as a souvenir.
