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.
