Click on any underlined state name above to go directly to that section of this index.  Within a state, sites are listed alphabetically by city and site-name.
NOTE:  Names and boundaries of the states used here are as in present-day Germany, with common English equivalents.  See the German Wikipedia article, on German states for more details, including the history of changes that occurred as a result of division and reunification.

If you are looking for a specific site by its institutional name (e.g., a church or school) or by the instrument's proper name, then use the "find in page" feature of your Web browser to locate a distinctive word (or partial word) in that name.

NOTES:

  1. For an explanation of the instrument-type tag at the end of each site link line, see the Instrument Type Abbreviations.

  2. If you do not find here a city (or instrument) which you think should be listed, then check the page of sites that are no more for Europe.  If it's not there, then please send a message to csz_stl@swbell.net telling everything you know about it.

  3. Many known carillons and chimes remain to be added here.

  4. Both the state list above and the section headings below show a common English equivalent of the German name of the state when one exists.

  5. For an explanation of our use of the tags BRD and DDR, see the long Note in the regional index overview page for this country.
