The Legend of the Dragon
A long time ago a dragon was living at Dragon Wall. It fell in love with the priest´s cook, but she did not yield to the yearning pleas of the dragon. The dragon decided to leave his home at Dragon Wall and abduct the cook. He flew to the marketplace of Mondsee, grabbed her and headed back. Alas, the priest´s cook turned out to be much heavier than the dragon anticipated. As a result, the two of them crashed into the Dragon Wall at full speed and hit a hole in there, which still can be seen today. That´s how the Dragon Wall received its name.
