The “Venedigermandl”

All over the Alps you can hear the tale of a mysterious dwarf, who took out gold and treasures from the mountains using witchcraft and magic mirrors – and he killed those who wanted to discover its secrets. In mountain villages like Unterammergau they even know what families had to do with this killer-dwarf. We followed the dwarfs track to the seventeenth-century Venezia and found out the historical core behind the tale.
