Castle prison, dungeon and torture

You can find Hungermorn with a torture house in the oldest surviving stone building of the Castle of the Shire Tower from the first half of the 13th century. On the ground floor there is a foyer, completed on the first floor with two prison cellars. On the second floor there is a torture shop with replicas of torture instruments and presentations of torture. Visitors can do everything and try it out. In July and August, the circuit is accessible only with a guide. In the months of May, June and September the circuit is accessible separately without a Guide II. Entrance to the castle.

As a defensive tower, it protected the only access to the wooden fortifications at that time. Originally, the tower was residential (for the castle crew); in later times, when it lost its significance (at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries), the tower served as a gunpowder store (it was called dusty). Since 1679, a castle prison with a famine has been set up in the tower. There were prisoners of disobedience and imprisonment here.

Organization of tours: guided tour, the circuit is open only in July and August, groups up to 15 people, duration of the tour 30 minutes. The tour can be booked. Foreigners can borrow printed texts in English and German on request. The last tour starts 1 hour before the end of the opening hours. During the tour, you can shoot and film for free.
