It never served as a medieval castle observation tower, having been completed as late as 1880 during the construction of pseudo-Gothic premises of the Red Castle, built of red bricks. Its romantic tower attracts many visitors, mainly children. It reaches 35 metres above the level of the castle courtyard, with a weathercock turning around at the top of its cone- shaped tower. The outside average of the tower is 6m and a staircase with 99 steps and 2 landings leads to its top. If you climb it, you get higher than the tower clock.
Binoculars can be borrowed by visitors free of charge.
