The Löwenkeller (Lion cellar)

loewenkeller 5In order to survive long-term sieges, it was most important to have supplies available. Even in the old days, there was a necessity for some kind of refrigerator. Too bad this machine was invented 700 years later! Therefore, supplies were made durable by salting and fumigation. Those fancy foods like ham, saucages or fish were stored in the castles Löwenkeller (Lion cellar). Here they were hanging from the ceiling and waiting for being eaten in the medieval feasts. 

You will find the Löwenkeller at the nortwestern tip of the basement, right under the Wilhelm-Wirich-wing. Today, the room is used for traditional Spießbraten-feasts.
