The Carillon of Sisikon

The Swiss chocolate producers presented a carillon on the occasion of the first national day of Swiss chocolate, 12 September 2001.

The carillon (Glockenspiel of Sisikon) is the largest in Switzerland and consists of 37 bells with the tones e1- e4 and a bronze weight of about 6 000 kg.

Both chocolate and chimes stand for innovation and keeping up with the times, but also for tradition, enjoyment, quality compositions and a high level of craftsmanship.

Different melodies are pre-programmed and can be played by anyone.
