On November 22 a number of undergraduate and graduate students with teachers of the Dutch Carillon School made an excursion to Asten. They visited the Museum Clock and Peel and the Royal Eijsbouts bell foundry. In the museum they were shown round by the guide Rainer Schütte, who explained the variety of bells and timepieces in the collection. Then they were given a tour of the bell foundry by Joep Brussels of Royal Eijsbouts. They watched the casting process of a bronze bell and that made a deep impression. Finally there was a discussion with the deputy director of Eijsbouts and students agreed that this was a very successful tour that they could recommend to anyone.
