Grey tower with a gruesome past

The Grey Tower, also called the Count's Tower, was first mentioned in 1414. It is located at the south-east corner of the former fortification with a subsequent section of wall at a part of the battlement. The tent roof of the octagonal tower is modern. It served a cruel justice from 1600 to 1659: Tower punishment, interrogation and torture of the "witches" before their execution on the "Hexenkippel" near the "Hohe Lay".
