The Black Forest located partially in Lahr in Schwarzwald Germany has many myth and legends associated with it. It was home to sorcerers and wizards that appeared in many different guises. They came as so called Freischützen, marksmen who fired off bullets with the help of the devil, bullets that never missed their target in the dark forests. Or they came as werewolves, like the wolf in Freudenstadt who always caught a juicy sheep for himself, a truly amazing feat, as nobody ever saw him. And when the hunter stayed awake and shot the wolf, one of the citizens was found lying wounded in his bed the next morning.
There were apparitions like the two monks from St. Blasien. These two had mercilessly oppressed the abbey’s subjects and therefore remained to haunt the monastery after their death. They were finally banished by a devout Capuchin monk from Staufen who exorcised their ghosts, captured them in sacks and threw them from the Feldberg Mountain into the Feldsee Lake. Down there in the lake itself were the “Erdmännlein” – dwarves who helped out wherever it was necessary.
