Miscellaneous

This bell was once installed in the north tower, now it hangs in the south tower (on the Kapitelplatz side) of the cathedral. It rings on Sundays and every Thursday, after the ringing to the evening Angelus, in commemoration of Jesus’ mortal agony.

This bell still possesses its original wooden yoke from 1628.
