Stop at Glockenspiel in Wisconsin Dells for some local shopping and kid-friendly storytime!

Glockenspiel is a small shopping mall set as a Bavarian Village in downtown Wisconsin Dells. You can visit shops such as the Carr Valley Cheese or House of Jerky, and eat at places such as El Asador.

The main attraction, however, is the giant glockenspiel (a glockenspiel is a percussion instrument composed of a set of tuned keys arranged in the fashion of the keyboard of a piano) with a musical re-enactment of the legendary Pied Piper of Hamelin. The legend has it that the piper rid the village of Hamelin of its rats and mice with his flute-playing. If you don't pay the piper's price, the townsfolks children are charmed away by the piper!

This German-themed free attraction is always fun for the little ones!
