*Links:

The church Website has several zippy photos of church buildings, but they are all unidentified.

The German Wikipedia article about the church has a photo of the round tower.  The section about the tower and bells mentions a peal of 3 bells by Petit & Gebr. Edelbrock (2008), as well as the Glockenspiel (though the number of bells given is probably incorrect).

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Paccard bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
