NOTES:

  1. Unlike other "Europe" indexes, this page includes not only sites in the "miscellaneous" countries (those which do not have index pages of their own) but also sites in the "major" countries (those which do have index pages of their own - Belgium, Denmark, etc.).  Thus this index is most suitable for searching for sites which you know only by name (of the instrument or the institution or the city) and not by country. 
  2. For an explanation of the instrument-type tag at the end of each site link line, see the Instrument Type Abbreviations.

  3. Cities which have (or had) a carillon or chime during a historical period when they were part of, or were occupied by, a different country may be cross-referenced by the name which they bore in the language of that country.  For the same reason, place names are sometimes given in alternate languages.  Such references enable the reader to connect historical references with present circumstances, and are not intended to express any political opinion regarding past or present facts.

  4. 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 or the combined index to all sites for this region.

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