Until 1917, the Blankenburg St. Bartholomew's Church had four bronze bells. Three of these were melted down in the late phase of World War I for war. As a substitute, the church received in 1922 three bells made of cast steel. These too heavy bells damaged the belfry sustainably over several decades. After its renovation in 2004 was the decommissioning of the three steel bells and their replacement by a peal of bronze. The three steel bells were placed in the same year on the playground at the site of the former city church of St. Catherine, where they can be viewed from anyone from close up since then.The three bells from left to right:
