The 14th century Sigmundsried Castle, located near Ried im Oberinntal, Austria, is a three-storey tower which once served as a prison. During that period, its underground room was referred to as angstloch. The building was later converted into a hunting lodge and then adapted as a warehouse. Since 2014, it has served as a cultural attraction. Tours of the castle include an exhibition of the angstloch outfitted as an authentic prison cell.
