    When the catholic prince-bishop Julius Echter von Mespelbrunn founded the University of Würzburg in 1582, he added a university church. Today, the church is no longer used for church service but as a ballroom for university parties, concerts and conferences. With 91 metres, the tower of Neubaukirche (English: newly built church) is the highest in Würzburg.

    In 2005, a carillon was installed in the tower which is found in few other universities in Europe. Regular carillon concerts are given from May to December and are open to the public.
