Additional informationsAt the rocky promontory opposite on the south side of the castle is an old watchtower named "Verlorenkost”. The funny name means "lost food" and the story tells that during the construction a cook carried the meals to the builders. She stumbled and smashed the pots with the food. The food (kost) was then lost (verloren) giving the tower its name which it still retains today.
Another story says that the tower could never be used as a watchtower as it stands on the wrong place. The building was thus a "lost cost".
