24 St. Peter’s Church Bell in Rostock, Germany

After the original 413 foot spire of St. Peter’s Church was stuck by lightening in 1543, the tower was rebuilt into a smaller, polygonal-shape. In preparation for its completion, this four-foot bell was cast by Peter Matze in 1548. When the tower burned down during a bombing in 1942, this was the only bell salvaged from the belfry. It is on display at the entrance of Petrikirche.
