Traditional carillons in Europe:
index by year of completion

NOTE:   Great Britain and Ireland are separately indexed, as are Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

This is an index to the 56 existing European traditional carillons, in order by year of completion (to the current number of bells).  Instruments which were completed in the same year are listed in order by the city name without regard to the exact date on which the installation was finished.

After the year, a letter indicates that it is

C - when the complete instrument was installed;
E - when the instrument was enlarged from its previous size;
R - when the instrument's range changed, but not its size.
(Replacements which did not change the range are not considered here.)
