Bronze bells / Campanas de bronce / Cloches en bronze / Sinos de bronze

In English:

Those who are on the road trip from the South to the North in Pyhäjärvi, they are astonished when seeing an huge “golden” bell at the crossroad.

To us it was the third time when we visited the site – now in winter in 2013 on the way to the Arctic Circle. The place is called Vaskikello meaning Bronze Bell. In reality, it is restaurant, but on the area there are about 1500 bronze bells, small and big, which You can play.

Bells, which became old, were sold by the Tutzing parish in Germany under the condition that people can see them and they are treated with respect. This explains the German text in them. This information is freely translated from the Finnish site of the restaurant of Vaskikello.

En español:

Aquellos que hacen un viaje por carretera desde el Sur hacia el Norte en Pyhäjärvi, ellos se sorprenden al ver una enorme campana “de oro” en la encrucijada.

Para nosotros fue la tercera vez cuando visitábamos el sitio – ahora en invierno en 2013. El lugar se llama Vaskikello significa “Campana de bronce”. En realidad, es el restaurante, pero en la zona hay aproximadamente de 1500 campanas, pequeñas y grandes, que se puede tocar.

Las campanas, que envejecían, fueron vendidos por la parroquia de Tutzing en Alemania bajo la condición de que la gente pueda verlos y se les trata con respeto. Esto explica el texto alemán en ellos. Esta información ha traducido libremente desde el sitio finlandesa del restaurante del Vaskikello.

En francais:

Ceux qui sont sur le voyage sur la route du Sud vers le Nord en Pyhäjärvi, ils sont étonnés en voyant une énorme cloche “d’or” au carrefour.

Pour nous, il était la troisième fois quand nous avons visité le site – maintenant en hiver en 2013. L’endroit est appelé Vaskikello signifie “Cloche de bronze”. En réalité,c’est un restaurant, mais sur la zone il y a environ 1500 cloches, petits et grands, que vous pouvez les sonner.

Cloches, qui sont devenus vieux, ont été vendus par la paroisse de Tutzing en Allemagne sous la condition que les gens puissent les voir et ils sont traités avec respect. Ceci explique le texte allemand en eux. Cette information est traduit librement depuis le site finlandais du restaurant de Vaskikello.

Em Português:

Aqueles que estão na viagem por estrada do Sul para o Norte em Pyhäjärvi, eles se espantam ao ver uma sino enorme “ouro” no cruzamento.

Pra nós, foi a terceira vez quando visitávamos no site – agora no inverno, em 2013. O lugar é chamado Vaskikello significando “Sino de bronze. Na realidade, é um restaurante, mas na área há aproximadamente 1500 sinos, pequenas e grandes, que você pode tocar.

Sinos, que envelheciam, foram vendidos pela paróquia de Tutzing na Alemanha, sob a condição de que as pessoas possam vê-los e eles são tratados com respeito. Isso explica o texto alemão neles. Esta informação é livremente traduzido do site finlandesa do restaurante de Vaskikello.

  1. What a wonderful collection of bells. I would very much like to see them and hear them!

    • Hi Terry.

      I am glad that You loved my photos from these bells. In winter, man cannot see texts in them. Their sound is heavenly when people play them.

      Happy weekend!

  2. Because there is the Japanese bell, I am surprised. It is worn in every day in a temple nearby at 6:40 in the evening.
    Do you sound music what kind of sound a bell of Finland is?

    Comment by medaka4841 — January 22, 2016 @ 09:10 | Reply

    • Hello Medaka4841.

      Oh, I see. Tell me which one. Move mouse pointer over the photo and then You can see the number of photos on the left on lower corner. The sound depends on the size of bell: low, resonant, clear, and melodious.

      Happy weekend!

    • Hi Ute.

      Thank You. This winter we have both snow and cold weathe. This Morning when I published this post the temperature was -33ºC / -27.4ºF. Brr. Tomorrow it will be much warmer.

      Happy Weekend!

      • I can’t believe it -33 degrees, how do you do it? By the way Tutzing is where my sister works… and the bells are form there.. I need to tell her.

        • Hello Ute.

          wow. Our world is small. It is too cold for walking or something to that. We must stay inside and wait for warming. Today the weather is only -8ºC / 17.6ºF and it means that we have to go for walking!

          Happy weekend!

          • I believe that, in those temperatures it is impossible. -8 sounds rather warm then. Have a good walk. I am sure your houses are warm and cosy, and lovely heated up!

  5. The bells are simply beautiful, but that’s just TOO much snow, Sartenada 🙂 🙂

    • Hi Johanna.

      Yes, there were snow much, because it snowed during many hundreds of kilometers. Driving is art when it is winter.🙂

  6. A snow scene is very beautiful. In Osaka, it snowed for the first time this week. What do they use these bells for?

    • Hi Wakasahs15th.

      Thank You commenting. These bells are for the pleasure of tourists. In summer photos, they have gorgeous paintings on them. I think that these are unique now in the world. Finland offers some surprises and this is one of them.

    • Hi Tanja.

      Yes mainly in summer people play them and test what kind of sound different bells sounds. Music, no because it requires that many people plays them together.

  20. Fantastic! I never heard of them before. What would I be lucky to hear someone playing them or to try it myself! It’s great to see them already in the snow. .But then I noticed your link to your summer photos and I’m so impressed! So many of different sizes!. What a variety of bells! How colourful, how shining or how amazing the pictures on them! Wow!
    Thanks for showing, Matti, it must be overwhelming to be there. Well, and I had to smile about the bell which is serving as a roof for the phone. ^^

    Have a nice Sunday!

  27. Looks like you received all the snow this year. I am in Western Canada and we usually have a lot of snow this time of year. This year the fields are brown and it looks and feels a lot more like spring than winter. Thank you for sharing your ice flower pictures. I remember these so well from growing up in Germany.
