The general restoration of the bells at Magdeburg Cathedral has been waiting to be realized for many years. But this plan shall now become reality. The current number of bells at Magdeburg Cathedral will be increased to a total of 12 bells for the cathedral. Therefore, the four existing bells will be joined by another eight new bells. Only three of the present bells are currently in use for church services. The fourth bell, bearing the name “Dominica”, kept quiet for more than 10 years and needed to be repaired first. This repair was implemented by our society in 2019! You can now take a look at the restored “Dominica”. For this as well as for another grand bell (g°), however, we first need to have a new bell cage installed in the north tower of Magdeburg Cathedral. Magdeburg Cathedral is the oldest and most important gothic cathedral in Germany. It has been completed in the Middle Ages in 1520 with its two grand towers, each measuring 100 m.
