The Three Maidens at Deisenhofen

A very long time ago, three maidens were frequently spotted in the cellar of the Forsterbauer farmers. The farmer's wife left cream in the cellar for churning butter, and they also spun flax and completed other domestic chores. However, since they were naked, one day the farmer's wife decided to give them newly made shirts in order to reward them for their labors. Since that day they were never seen again.

The farm where they had been seen is located on a small hill, and the local farmers claim that several underground chambers are located within it.
