Tours of the Carillon Tower After the

the carillon tower are offered at the end of the concerts. No advance
registration is necessary, just wait at the bottom of the tower for the
carillonneur and remember that coming down takes a bit of time! Ascend
the tower with him - there is no elevator, you must climb about 130
steps for the first section and then later another 60 but the stairway
is modern and easy to ascend and you will be rewarded with a
unique view of Berlin and its government buildings! The carillonneur,
Jeffrey Bossin, guides you through the tower, answers your questions,
explains the special features of the instrument and recounts the
interesting history of the carillon in Berlin from its beginning under
the first King of Prussia to the reunification of Germany. He
demonstrates the instrument's fascinating playing technique and
plays a virtuosic work for carillon for you on the big keyboard! Price:
