    A wonderfully energetic place that is not shrouded in legend for nothing.

    A long time ago a mechanic was commissioned by the Bautzen city council to provide the city with water from the river, but since the work was very expensive, he undertook to give up his head if it didn't work. So he built a so-called art and used one of the towers in the curtain wall, where the water is lifted up by machines and from there into the city. When the work was finished, behold, it did not work; So the builder was established and death awaited him afterwards.In the meantime he succeeded in escaping at night; He fled out the Neusalzaer Strasse, but when he came to the mountain near the village of Ebendörfel, he was suddenly seized with tiredness, sat down and fell asleep. Then he dreamed as vividly as if he saw that a rat was stuck in one of the tubes of his water art and that the work was clogged as a result. Upon awakening, he decided that at the risk of losing his life, he would return and take the advice.As expected, so it happened; he turned back and faced his judges on the condition that they allow him to examine the workings of his waterworks again before being led to death. He was allowed to do this, and behold, he really did find a rat in the tube, just as he had seen it in a dream. When it was pulled out, the water art went and continues to this day. Popularly called; but the mountain near Ebendörfel henceforth the dream mountain, from which the dialect of Bautzen made Dromberg or Thronberg.More information: historischerstammtisch.webnode.com/sagen/dromberg-und-die-wasserkunst
