Auen Local Customs: 5 reviews and 7 photos
How about this legend for a change? Whenever you're visiting the little village of Auen it's about impossible not to hear about the Jäger aus Kürpfalz (the hunter of Kürpfalz). The locals are willing to tell you all about it! Of course the tales of the legends are mystical, just like this one. Today the song of the Jäger aus Kürpfalz is sung mostly in choral societies.
Very few know that the Jäger aus Kürpfalz (1732 - 1795) was born a hereditary named Friederich Wilhelm Utsch in Rheinböllen in the Hunsrück. He owned a "Maltese Hospital" and his official seat was not far from the village of Auen. Especially beautifully situated on the edge of the Soonwald is the thousand-year old Willigis Kapelle (chapel), where the Jäger aus Kürpfalz is entombed.
