german-bell-warsawThe “German” bell in the Old Town of Warsaw is from the section Small but nice! It was cast by a German bell founder but was never used as a bell.

Short description

T he bell was cast in the 17th century by Daniel Thiem. Originally it was supposed to hang in the bell tower in Jaroslaw, but it cracked and was never used. Since 1972 it has adorned this small romantic place, which is rarely visited by tourists.

According to a legend, it grants wishes, but you have to make some effort and perform a ritual beforehand. Instructions for use can be found in our detailed description.

Type of attraction
A free-standing bell on a small square in Warsaw's Old Town.
In the touristic area?
Yes | Old Town
Kanonia, 00-279 Warszawa
How to get?
Kanonia Street runs behind the St. John´s Cathedral. The street has the shape of an isosceles triangle. Next to the bell is also the house with the narrowest main façade. The main market is only 100m away. Keep in mind that you can only get around the Old Town on foot.

The bell is located in Warsaw´s Old Town, for which we have prepared a separate overview.


There is a lot of cobblestones in and around the Old Town. People with walking difficulties (wheelchair, rollator) do not have it so easy here and should ask for a supporting hand.
