The woman who had to carry her drunken husband home
Every year on the occasion of Fasnacht Monday the Guild of Carpenters, Turners and Coopers re-enact the Greth Schell story. Local children enjoy oranges and bread rolls distributed to them on the occasion. The origins of this carnival custom and of the fountain date well back into the 17th century. There are many legends told about the historical figure Margaret Schell, who often had to carry her drunk husband, Peter Schell, home.
