Outside the Marienkirche I saw this little devil statue. It was sitting on a little ledge, close to the ground, with its back against the wall of the church. I thought this little devil statue looks cute, but there is also a fun little story that goes together with this statue.
The German word for devil is 'Teufel' and there is and the legend is about the 'Teufelstein' (devils stone). When the church was built, according to the legend, the devil was tricked into helping because he was told it was actually going to be a great beer hall. But when he found out the truth and that he had been deceived, he knocked a few of the church's great stones to the ground... the Teufelstein, or devilstone.
