She started telling him, that this is not a usual stone bulk. For the appearance something strange had his hands in. Not far away from the actual village there was many years ago a village located with a wonderful church. From far away a lot of people came to the mess in this church and a young lady living in the village – her name was Ilse – always arranged wonderful flowers in this church. Everybody loved her for such a great decoration. But on one Sunday morning the visitors of the mess saw a very sad picture, no flowers at all and on the stairway to the church the parents of the girl were sitting and crying. As they were asked what happened, they told the others that the devil came for Ilse.
On the day before happened the following: Ilse was on the field to collect the flowers and as she entered the area of the square before the church, a limping person was waiting for her. He took the girl with him and disappeared. On the square there was a sulfurous smell in the air. Not far away in the field they also found the steps of three foot and one hoof.
They followed the tracks to the top of the mountain and found Ilses’ clothes on the stone bulk which was not there on the day before, and only mortal people were able to remove the stone bulk from this place.
The prince archbishop was so angry and sad about that, that he called all his handcrafts working on the palace of Mirabell to remove the stone bulk. They were successful and took the stone bulk back to the palace and made the basin of the big water fountain in the middle of the gardens out of these stones. The fountain in the middle should always remember the girl Ilse. A nice memory for a young girl in the middle of a famous garden and one of the most pictured fountains within the city area – isn’t it?
