Kleinzell Off The Beaten Path: 4 reviews and 20 photos
Rohr im Gebierge is a small village, in the Austrian Alps.
It is a saga, over this place. I read it, in the open air museum into Kalte Kuchl.
It was written of Friedl Hofbauer and everyone can read it.
I found this history interestingly, and I will try to retell, as good as possible.
It is the saga over the sunken town in the mountains.
"Where lies, today, the place Rohr im Gebirge, was once a town.
The town was very beautiful.
All inhabitants were rich.
They knew no more, what they should start with their wealth, they were so richly.
It is already right if one wants to have do it beautifully, and that becomes enough all, it is quite beautiful.
But the people knew no more what is really right and beautiful.
They had so many bratwursts, for example, that they hung them up on the dance ground as garlands, and there the sausages spoiled because no one wanted to eat more bratwursts.
They played soccer with the doughnuts, and they set up the rolls as cones.
They lubricated their carriage with butter....
The Rohrer had all at that time, which many people not even know.
One day, they started to gild their dung pails...
Once, it began to rain.
Nobody knows more today, how long it rained.
But it rained very long.
The Zellenbach could admit no more the much rainwater.
It flooded all.
The whole town Rohr is deep at that time.
Only the church cross still looked from the water.
A poor farmer, who lived farther above on the mountain, that is driven over with a boat, takes the cross and nailed it at a tree, as thought signs.
You can see the cross still today and the children in the school from Rohr im Gebirge gets told the saga from the sunken town.
From under the swamp meadow of Rohr one should hear, sometimes, music and shouting from the high-spirited, prodigal town.
Rohr doesn't have any golden dung pails more today, but it wants them also nobody.
And nobody hangs up bratwursts on the dance ground as garlands, and nobody wants to bowl with bread or wants to lubricate the tractor with butter".
