St. Bartholomew’s Bell Tower

Closing time
at 23:00

History

The bells are termporarily out of order.

The three bells on three columns are practically a moving statue capable of rising up as a tower. It is elevated 13 meters by hydraulics hidden 13 meters deep. A bronze statue represents the eponym of the former church, the Apostle St. Bartholomew, patron saint of tanners and vineyards. Bartholomew suffered martyrdom in A.D. 70, when he was brutally executed. He was flayed alive, crucified and beheaded. Hence the snake represents Bartholomew’s main activity, exorcism while the crucifix represents suffering and his naked body in bronze is symbolic of his having been flayed. The peal and the composition ring to movement every day at 7.00, 12.00 und 19.00 o’clock.
