    "Walter Görig erected the" Glocke "in 1926-28 instead of the" Künstlervereinshaus ", a cathedral monastery from the 13th to 17th century converted for the artists' club in 1869. This was burnt down in 1915. The new building was the result of a nationwide competition in 1920 in favor of Görig In addition to the rooms for the cathedral chapter was also connected to the tradition as a concert hall, which had been successfully established by the artist's association.Walter Görig, who was also in 1930 as a cathedral master builder, built around a designed as a cloister garden on The dominant feature of the townscape is the dominant stepped gable to the Domsheide, while the façade of the Grasmarkt with the detailed and delicate bay window in respect of the cathedral retains gracefully Construction time in Anleh to the Art Deco.
    The name "bell" does not derive from a ringing bell. It is to be understood as a protective conclusion, as a fall or as a vault of heaven and refers to a building that was built as a Domanbau in the Middle Ages, as a shelter or perhaps for the manufacture of the hosts served and no later than the turn of the 18th century by the canons was used as a chapter room. It was originally a hexagonal half-timbered building with a conical roof, which was placed on a round, windowless substructure. When this had become dilapidated, it was replaced in 1737 by design by Caspar David Renner by an octagonal new building, which was henceforth used for the Conventtsitzungen (although the octagon was preserved after the fire in 1915, today only the position in the floor plan is readable). After the artist association rebuilt the Domkloster into its clubhouse and also set up a concert hall, they generally spoke of the "artist's clubhouse". The designation as "bell" was established only with the reopening of the house 1928. The legend of the bell, which appeared under the pseudonym "Eka" and is illustrated by the painter Karl Dannemann through a cycle of murals in the restaurant, is an invention of the time.
