At various resting places, young and old hikers can learn interesting and amusing facts about the very voracious monsters that are said to have been up to mischief in the Vogtland region a long time ago and 85 years ago gave their name to the Dragon's Cave - the only dripstone cave in Saxony. A brave miller's boy is said to have surprised the voracious monster in his sleep on the hill of the present windmill and stabbed it to death with a pitchfork. In this way, the miller's sweetheart was saved from her gruesome fate.
