The topics


Bells are an integral part of everyday mountain life. The bells have been used for communication or as a warning signal for generations. From simply "calling" for lunch with the bell on the traditional farmhouses, warning of storms, thunderstorms or fires to the important ringing of the cow bells on the alpine pasture - the bells still perform a variety of tasks today and this topic is just as varied in ours Exhibition.


Take an audio tour through the history of the bells and admire the listening attractions from Waidring. Learn more about the life's work of the Waidring watchmaker and "cathedral builder" Josef Hauser and what the Cologne Cathedral has to do with it. You will also find rarities such as the old tower clock of the parish church in Waidring and the documentary by the well-known filmmaker Othmar Schmiederer.


The church bells in Waidring have accompanied many festivities over the decades. Take a journey through history with us on the way from the consecration of the bells to the most varied of occasions in which the Waidring bells played a role. Discover also the special features of the Waidring church chimes and the church tower clockwork.
