Holy fountain in Auleiten

Frankenmarkt, Oberösterreich, Österreich

In the forest below Hohenwart there is a source since unthinkable time: "Heilig Brünndl". Its water is said to have healing properties in eye disorders. Next to it is still a chapel.

If we continue from the Auleitenkirche on the road towards Höhenwarth and follow the forest in the forest to the left downhill. A legend tells that in a forest near Frankenmarkt a picture of Mary hung on a tree. To protect it from storm and rain, it was taken to the church in Frankenmarkt. The next morning it hung on the tree again. After that, a chapel was built here.
