    "Glocken Dorf Tirol" - Waidring in PillerseeTal

A warm welcome to the "Glockendorf Tirol"

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 2022, the Bell Adventure Trail will follow. 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.

The Bell Adventure path
