Bells are installed in the large courtyard, where they create a conspicuous feature over the castle well, and they enliven the somewhat austere but impressive surroundings. They form a chime consisting of 15 bells weighing from 16 to 220 kg, which were cast by Laetitie Dytrychová in Brodek u Prerova. The relief on the bells is the work of the sculptor Otmar Oliva. The chime plays one of 32 music compositions every whole hour. The chime plays from 9 am. till 6 pm.
