The carillon in Böttcherstrasse consists of 30 Meissen porcelain bells, which play a mixture of sea shanties and traditional folk songs.
The tower at the side of the building contains ten wooden tablets depicting 'Atlantic conquerors' – explorers who crossed the ocean by sea or air – which turn in time with the music.
Every hour on the hour, from April to December, the carillon delights visitors of all ages. It is an important and charming component of the overall work of art that is the Böttcherstrasse.
