Vellenberg, a castle four miles southwest of Inns­bruck, Austria, today a significant ruin; in the 16th century it had a tower in which Anabaptists were imprisoned. Hans Mandel, who lay there in 1561, described it thus: "It is rather deep, I have heard six fathoms; but it has a small window at the top and the sun shines in a while, so that it is light." It was then full of vermin and especially bats. Jörg (Georg) Liebich lay in this dun­geon for years (1538-1542). Ursula Hellrigl, who was arrested for her faith at the age of 18 and spent 5 years in three dungeons, was in the Vellen­berg tower for 1½ years.
