Grassmayr Bells Museum

For 14 generations the Grassmayr family has been producing and restoring in Innsbruck bells for the whole world.

The Grassmayr Bell Foundry can look back on more than 400 years of experience and tradition. In 1599, Bartlme Grassmayr cast his first bell and since then this expert knowledge is kept as a secret. Today in more than 100 states bells which have been produced in the Grassmayr Bell Foundry can be heard. And still today the bells are cast according to traditional handicraft methods.

The Grassmayr Bell Foundry is where not only bells are produced, but also restored. The largest bell that was cast in the bell foundry weighs 10 tons and sounds every day at 5 pm in Telfs/Mösern in North Tyrol. This so-called Peace Bell sounds for "peaceful neighbourhood and peace in the Alps". In the building there is also a museum that is really worth to be visited. The sound room of the museum is a real acoustic experience, as the bells of the Grassmayr Bell Foundry makes sound several tones in its complex structure. The larger bells produce up to 50 partial tones.

The concept of the Grassmayr Bells Museum (Glockenmuseum Grassmayr) has been awarded: The Austrian federal ministry of culture has awarded the Austrian Museum Prize to the museum. Additionally, the Austrian television ORF has awarded the Maecenas Prize. If you would like to visit the museum we recommend you to arrange enough time, so to speak at least one hour!
