The Town Hall

 

The town hall has a carillon above the main entrance, which is attached on both sides of the middle window. It was installed in1884 and consists of 18 precisely tuned bronze bells, which are automatically switched on and off. They weigh 276,5 kg in total weight and can also be played by hand from a simple keyboard at the town hall. The carillion regularly plays the melody of Fritz Wunderlich’s song „Mein Kusel in der Pfalz“, in which the tenor pays tribute to his hometown. It can be heard every day at 12:20 p.m.
