Netherlands Carillon

  • Metro: Rosslyn

Overlooking Washington, D.C., the Netherlands Carillon was a gift from the Dutch people in gratitude for U.S. aid given during World War II. The tower features 50 bells of the hanging in an open steel tower, which play various patriotic tunes at set times. The carillon's peaceful setting, with its floral libraries and sculpted lions, is the perfect place to listen to the music of the bells. Hear guest artists perform concerts on summer Saturdays.

The tower may be reached by car from route 110 N or S, or on foot from Arlington National Cemetery, the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, or the Rosslyn metro.
