Showing Data Points related to the date/period 1615
In the early 17th century, during the renovation of the church complex, the original bell tower was replaced with a new, freestanding campanile, inspired by the St. Marc campanile in Venice. Erected between 1600 and 1615, this campanile stands between the church presbytery of St. George and the future baptistery. It measures 46.45 meters in height, including a rotating archangel Michael on the roof, and boasts a panoramic view from the top. The campanile houses four bells, including the oldest one dating back to 1477, which chimes every full hour. In 2015, the upper part of the bell tower underwent renovation, and two new bells were installed as a gift from a parish in Berlin. The replaced bells are now kept in the parish garden. Additionally, the bell tower's clock mechanism is considered a valuable monument of technical heritage.
