A city tour of a special kind!
During the winter months, Gütersloh has been ringing out a special sound for over 200 years: the night chime of Gütersloh. From Reformation Day at the end of October until Candlemas at the beginning of February, the night chimes ring out every Saturday evening from the bell tower of the Martin Luther Church. Today, this traditional way of making music with church bells is only practiced in Gütersloh.
City guide Brunhilde Kohls will lead you on this romantic evening walk through the alleys of the city to the sounds of the night bell ringing. Learn everything about the origin of the bell ringing and this unique, still preserved tradition during this special city tour.
The tour starts in front of Café Fritzenkötter. From there, it takes about two hours to walk through downtown Gütersloh, past the city museum, the registry office, the old church square and, of course, the Martin Luther Church. The tour ends at the Old District Court on Berliner Platz.
