*Links:

The Website of the carillon (in Danish) has a photo of the keyboard (with keys for future trebles but without future bass pedal), a small drawing of the building, an aerial perspective photo of the building in its neighborhood, and a history of bells here.

The parish Webpage (in Danish) has a small photo of St.Gertruds church in the upper left corner; unfortunately it is not clickable for a larger version.  (The clickable photo in the upper right corner shows a bell house, but it is not clear whether it is at St.Gertruds church or at St.Peters church.)
