Farmers began using cowbells so they could locate their cattle even in thick fog or at night. Today, the sound of cowbells is a familiar feature of many festivities and sporting events. You can even create a cowbell of your own, casting it yourself: just book in advance at the Berger foundry in Bärau. The first job is to decorate the sand moulds, after which guests are taken on a tour of the foundry while the metal is being heated up to 1100 degrees. Once it is molten, the bells are cast and just a short time later can be admired as unique works of craftsmanship.
