Klangturm Hamburg-Veddel: Atom™

Hamburg now has a sound tower, and it is located in Veddel, a district close to the city centre that is unusual in many ways. In the tower of the Lutheran Immanuelkirche, which was rebuilt in 1952, the bells no longer ring; now sounds come from loudspeakers. The sound programmes by 12 artists and a school class serve like chimes to signal the time. The sounds can be heard from 01.07.2021 to 31.07.2022 every day except Mondays from 8 am to 8 pm at quarter-hourly intervals.

Funded by Musikfonds e.V. by means of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, by Gwärtler Foundation as well as by Verfügungsfonds of the Hamburg-Veddel district council.
