Wooden medieval styled characters move inside the carillon of the new townhall at the Marienplatz in Munich, Germany. The carillon, refered to locally as a Glockenspiel, was restored a few years ago. The chimes were in need of urgent repair, while the wooden, painted figures are in a quite good condition. At 11, 12 and 17 o’clock each day, visitors can watch the famous Glockenspiel, which is a main attraction for Munich tourists.
***The figures in the first balcony perform the cooper’s dance, which was originally performed in 1517 at the Marienplatz to commemmorate the end of the plague, while in the upper floor is performed a medieval tournament.
