Glockenspiel at Le Diamant

mirari and Le Diamant

Exterior facade of Le Diamant

In German, Glockenspiel means “carillon” (literally “bell play”).

At the request of the German Christmas Market, which has added a new location this year at Place D’Youville, and in partnership with Solotech, Le Diamant is presenting the Glockenspiel. Designed to be viewed in the windows from outside the building, the installation pays homage to the large, crowd-pleasing, hundred-year-old clock in the heart of Munich. Every day through the end of the year, from 12 p.m. until 9 p.m., Le Diamant will transform into a Glockenspiel with all its mechanisms. Come enjoy the animated show inspired by the stories of 16th-century characters and traditional German music.


  • From 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. through December 31
  • Four animated pieces with music and visuals will be presented in rotation every 15 minutes
  • Visible on the facade of Le Diamant from Place D’Youville


Until December 31 — from noon to 9 p.m. Free
