The Alfler death bell

From 1750 to 1942 the "death bell" was located in this roof turret, which at that time had rung more than 4,000 deceased to rest.
The bell was confiscated in 1942 and melted down for weapons production.

It is thanks to the "Totenglöckchen" interest group in 2010 that a new bell was purchased.
