  Legends of the Titisee

 

Due to the unique location of the Titisee and its special colour which
- depending on the season- changes from dark green to a deep shade of
blue or mysterious black, there are lots of stories and legends dealing
with the Titisee. In addition, there is the closeness to the Feldberg which
helped reinforce the mysteries around the Titisee.
You can see the mountain in the background of the inlet. The height difference
amounts to over 600m although the Titisee itself is located at a height of about
850m.
Many legends have been handed down for generations and that's
why there are so many variations.
I would love to tell you some of the most famous legends:

Once upon the time,

there was a lost city.

 Once upon a time the people of Titisee were sitting in a restaurant betting
 about the actual depth of their lake. The bravest of them should go to the
 uncanny lake to determine the depth with the help of a plumbline and a rope.
 The brave man had already unrolled 100 metres of rope but there was no end to
 be seen. All of a sudden, the rope was hold back and the man’s boat almost
 sank when a voice arised from the lake: If you mesure me, I’ll devour you!
 Full of fear the man rowed quickly to the shore and told the story to his pals.
 From this day on, nobody has ever tried to explore the depth of the lake.

 I hope you enjoyed these tales.
