vine cellar

weinkeller1.jpg (90237 Byte)Over 300 years ago the citadel's master builder included a big arched cellar into the secred passage ways of the fortress. That room is at least 200 years older than the citadel itself. Supposidly it was the basement of a vitner's home. In mediaeval times people grew vine at the slopes of St. Peters' Hights.
The cellar can be visited in guided fortress tours.
