The Fisherman and the Sunken Castle
Near Stintenburg stood in years long gone by a castle. Today the place is called ‘Borgstedenort’ (Place of the burg). It is said that the castle was enchanted and had disappeared into the water. Often fishermen have seen a mysterious light rising at midnight from the bottom of the lake. The glare comes from the many lights burning behind the windows of the sunken castle.
