The Legend of the Giant's Grave at the Sam

Foto: Innerbichler Peter

 

Once upon a time, a caponized rooster – a so-called Kapaun - lived at the Winkler Farm. To the great surprise of the Winkler farmer and his wife, it laid a gigantic egg. After a few weeks they were horrified to discover that a giant had hatched from the egg. This giant could do amazing things. He drank bucketfuls of milk, ate whole cows, mowed the meadow with his nails, tore down trees and struck fear into the hearts of all. Boasting and bragging was his favorite pastime.

One day the giant wanted to prove to everyone how long his stride was. So he went up the sunny side of the mountain above the Locher Farm, called the “Sam”, and from there stretched out his leg to reach the other, shadowy side across the valley. But he had overestimated his reach and was torn in two. One half of the giant was buried on the sunny side, one half on the shadowy side. Still today, two huge hills, one on each side of the valley, mark the site of the giant's double grave.
