I really enjoyed the show there was benches sitting facing the glockenspiel . There were lots of people sitting around watching the show. Me and my wife enjoyed it but our 15 year old was bored at the 9 minute show. We enjoyed icy though

What else are you gonna do in New Ulm? You could tour the 3M plant but I don't think they give away free samples. You could check out the Schell brewery, where they definitely do give out free samples. You could check out the German/Minnesota BBQ (which in my opinion you only need to do once). But the one thing... More

So beautiful to hear. Worth waiting for. Drive through town with the windows down so you don't miss the music!

This Glockenspiel has multiple tableaus that spin on the large disk that emerges from the closed doors and the park offers seating under lovely old trees next to a very Bavarian decorated street. The show is long, but includes a wonderful mix of songs and is a delightful and restful way to spend a half hour.

We really liked this. It was the first time that we had ever seen a clock that played music like a big cuckoo clock. We went at noon and watched it for about 15 minutes while the stuff was moving. Really nice little park and easy to find.

We were in town visiting relatives and went on a Wednesday night. Only two other people in the restaurant, which was hot & sticky, with one very nice & friendly waitress but she was very slow. We were there for over 2 hours. The brauts are not authentic and are not made on premises. I expected more from a family... More

Check out the glockenspiel "show" that occurs multiple times a day at this historic New Ulm site. A nice stop on any adventure!

At selected time intervals, a door opens up and animated figures which reflect on the various stages of New Ulm history, perform on a rotating stage, as music is played. Real neat.

I had read in the tour guide to New Ulm about the Glockenspiel and I just happened to be downtown 15 minutes before one of its scheduled performances, which take place at noon, 3:00, and 5:00. I took my camera and tripod and got into place on one of the park benches in front of it. About 20 other people... More
