Many years ago a woman who lived in Bozen and had promised to make a pilgrimage to the monastery at Maria Weißenstein died without fulfilling her vow. After her death she was cursed to return to life as a toad to keep her promise. For seven long years she slowly hopped and crawled from Bozen to Maria Weißenstein and when finally she reached her destination she was released from her vow and flew to heaven in the shape of a white dove. If you see a toad on your way to Maria Weißenstein then remember, keep your promises!
