In memory of the legend of the Blue Lake (Blausee) the artist and sculptor Raphael Fuchs carved a statue of the beautiful young girl who was found dead in this lake many years ago. This was the place where she used to spend many romantic hours with her lover. After his sudden death, which she couldn't come to terms with, she continued to return to the Blue Lake every night until she eventually died of grief herself. The blueness of the lake was apparently caused by her tears. She took sorrow and pain with her. But now it's time to forget the past and to welcome a new day. It's time to stand up!
Not only for the beautiful girl, but also for every one of us and for the whole of Mankind, it is time to forget the pain and sorrow of the past and look forward to a new and better life. For this we need to be willing to forgive and to forget. Inner satisfaction radiates outer peace. Give peace a chance. Let this statue help to remind us.
