Devil´s Stone / Stone Cross

Lembach im Mühlkreis, Oberösterreich, Österreich
  • Suitable for groups

Tracks of the Satan are said to be still visible on the Devil´s Stone and on the Stone Cross...

While there are many variations on the story, it most frequently begins with a farmer who had promised his soul to the Devil in exchange for good fortune. Full of remorse, he soon wanted to get out of this bargain again. He returned all the money to the Devil and exclaimed a quick prayer in despair. The Devil got really furious and rammed his pitchfork into the stone - and these signs are still visible.

The second legend regarding the Devil and the Stone Cross also occurred in Lembach. The Devil got into a serious fight with a farmer at night. The farmer cut off a Devil´s horn. Racked with pain, the Devil slammed his foot into a stone. And these signs are still visible as well. Out of gratitude, the farmer then had the Stone Cross installed.
