We did as obviously many people did. That is, taking fun photo's of the funny little man. I took one of my husband holding his umbrella over the figure, and he took me with my finger on its head and the other pointing upwards as many others have done as is obvious by tho the shiny head and hand

In the summer, if you toss a coin and make it to the pond, the legend said you were to come back here. I went in March and it was closed. I hope I get to come back here someday. Loved the city

The little man is quoted as having called down a flood to punish those who had lost their way and wandered from the true path of God. The barrel beside him is the water outflow of the fountain. The man's head is... More

The Wörthersee is one of the finest lakes of Austria; Klagenfurt is situated on the east bank of this lake. This statuette symbolizes the legend of the origin of the Wörthersee lake. A short but sure stop for the tourist visiting Klagenfurt.

The Wotheresee Mandl celebrates the lengend about the creation of Lake Wothersee. Briefly, he was a small man who twice admonished the drunkard inhabitants of a small city that was said to be where the Wothersee now is. He was laughed at and ignored, so he opened the tap on the keg he was carrying. An endless floe of water... More
