Priesendorf: home of the gartner and froscher

The name "froscher, the name given to the people of priesendorf in earlier times comes from the former trade that they carried out. The main occupation of the people was agriculture. The meager income was supplemented by the sale of gathered berries and self-tied brooms. Additionally, the priesendorfers served as frog catchers, quasi "froscher".

Today there are more than 1500 inhabitants living in the area of priesendorf, who probably do not earn their living by catching reptiles. The "frog fountain" is a humorous relic of the frog catching days next to the pilgrimage chapel.
