In 2014, UNESCO recognised Belgium’s carillon culture as best practice in protecting intangible cultural heritage.
UNESCO values the years of experience and campaigning in Belgium to pass on and develop carillon culture, praising it as a model for heritage communities all over the world.
A wonderful compliment for the Royal Carillon School “Jef Denyn”, in Mechelen, the world’s oldest and largest carillon school!
