    City-side corner round tower to secure the castle. With gunships and "machinations" for spewing pitch and hot water on the attackers

    The name Judde can be traced back to the patrician family Judde from Cologne.
    There are dark legends about the Juddeturm. In the past, the tower was used as a dungeon.
    The prisoners were locked in the extremely narrow tunnel-like tower, into which very little light falls. The old walls of the Judde Tower date from the 14th century.

    "... Even at the beginning of the 20th century there was a legend in Zons that the name of the tower stems from the fact that the first prisoner in the tower was a Jew. In contrast, the name may refer to the patrician family Judde, who also was wealthy in Zons and of which a tombstone has been preserved, which is now placed under the staircase to the tower. ... "
