Photo of the building; the bells are on the corner, not in the clock tower.

The shop Website has a photo of the building, in which the bells are clearly visible.
The page "Over Ons" (About Us) has more photos of the bells and tower (unfortunately not clickable for larger versions).
A parade of four figures at the hour qualifies this as a glockenspiel in our terminology.

Neither the Dutch Wikipedia article about the city nor the city's own Website says anything about these bells.
