The second courtyard is the smallest of the five courtyards. However, in it there is a building which was of great importance in the defence of the castle: the arsenal, also called the "Kurzer Kasten". Hand-held weapons and cannons were stored in the two lower floors, and grain on the upper floors. The master gunsmith had an apartment in the tower next to the arsenal. The three smaller towers on the town side are called the "Pfefferbüchsen". They originally housed small cannons which were kept ready for action.
