Legends: the folk culture in Austria

The legends are mainly based on oral tradition and are thusly very similar to fairytales. They are short, mythical tales that often sound like true stories because real people, places and events are adapted with fictional elements. The legend's authors are mostly unknown and the subject matters as well as the motives are often taken from other cultures and mixed with local traits of the landscape or the times.

Legends spread like Chinese whispers and can therefore differ from place to place and from narrator to narrator.
