This pond is a mythic location:
Legend tells the pond is indefinitely deep and it`s the entrance to her subterraneous empire.
Also, legends tell that – at noontime – Mother Holle is having a bath (as a young beautiful woman) in the middle of the pond, sometimes seducing travellers or hunters.
But we only met the nice wooden statue made by Viktor Donhauser: 🙂
