The Black tower is an 11 meter high massive tower with a glass roof constructed in 1995. It was built in the XIVth century and survived two fires caused by lightning. After the first fire (1599) the tower was named The Black Tower. The 2 m high entrance of the tower could be approached only by ladder. The link to the castle was an underground tunnel and a bridge. The tower was built for defense against enemies. The last time it functioned as a watchtower was in 1756 during the plague epidemic. Today the tower houses temporary exhibitions.
