There were fourteen bells at all different pitches; 7 were original, and 7 were made in Holland at the Royal Eijsbouts bell foundry in the 1980s. The original seven were moved up to the top to be part of the bell play.
The 360 degree view from the top was really lovely; Utrecht so far is very charming. We even met an Aussie girl at the top ...
