-The South Tower was built in 1318. About 1/3 of the way up you can see a door hidden in the shadows, that is the top of the dungeon pit where they threw prisoners. ​ One such prisoner was Fritz Erbe, an early Anabaptist who was imprisoned from 1540 until his death in 1548, for refusing to baptize his children as infants. ​ The Anabaptists,​ who believed in adult baptism, gave rise to the Amish and Mennonites. ​ Interestingly,​ we have an Erbe in our Ungerecht family tree, but we're probably not related to Fritz.+The South Tower was built in 1318.
