Glockenspiel Gets a Facelift

1 Oct

Originally installed in 1967, the Glockenspiel (bell tower) at the Bavarian Inn Restaurant has received a facelift.  As the most recognizable image of the restaurant, a fresh, more stylized look was the goal.   Steve from Artistic Decorating is shown adding “Bavarian diamond” decorations to the tower.

The Bavarian Inn Glockenspiel Tower houses a magnificent 35-bell carillon, a beautiful figurine movement and an illuminated clock, all imported from Germany! When striking the hour, and on each quarter hour, the clock sounds the 5-bell Westminster chime.

At Noon, 3p.m., 6p.m., and 9p.m. each day the Bavarian Inn Glockenspiel plays several selections which are immediately followed by figurine movement depicting the legend of the Pied Piper of Hameln.

Here is the finished painting:
