Or 'Eierberge' '
According to the legend, the following event took place in the "language", which brought the somewhat strange name "Eierberg" to the dunes on the edge of the Hohe Weg. "If you go east from Königsplatz on the Hohenweg through the language, you soon see on the right side a hill called Eierberg. According to the legend, this name is due to the following process. The Duke Georg Wilhelm and his entourage once met near the hill an old woman, who carried a Kiepe on his back. When asked about the contents of the Kiepe, she briefly and harshly exclaimed: 'Eggs!' When asked who should have them, the unexpected answer came: 'Oh, who's kidding the old Hertog into the Liew.' Displeasure was explained by the fact that she had to deliver 'tithing' to eggs at the Herzogshofe, and she did not like that. But the answer had aroused indifference on all sides, so she received a punishment which the benevolent Duke could not hinder. The woman had to lie down on the hill, and then they opened a target throwing at them with eggs. Dripping on yellow egg yolks and sticking with white eggshell, she made her way home. But she was later well compensated by the good duke. "
