Bell tower, Schaftalberg near Graz

Styria

Reconstructed: 1987 (original from the 19th century)

Bell towers were once common in many parts of Austria. The bell was rung to alert the local population to immanent dangers, such as oncoming storms or fire. This tower from Schaftalberg is an elegant structure, made of roughly hewn pine poles. It is 9 m high and thus significantly higher than the tower from Schallendorf which can be seen close to the entrance of the museum.
