Lake Reschen and its Tower

Do you remember my question from last Sunday?

Here the answer.
This old tower is the only visible remnant of the earlier village of Graun / Curon.
(If you like, you can read the whole story on wikipedia).

Old tower and modern art...

Play the puzzle here.


  1. Hi, I have seen this towel a many, many years ago, and I have forgot it. Thanks you remind me.
    It is a spectacular sight, the tower in the middle of the lake.
    But it's always shame when the village is inundated with artificial lakes.

  2. Oi! It is chilling to think of all that went under during the creation of this artificial lake.
    As your link says, "A legend says that during winter one can still hear church bells ring."

  3. Unas sorprendentes y bonitas imágenes...un saludo desde Murcia...

  4. It is strange to see that in the middle of the water... but it's a beautiful locale.

  5. Aber nun mal trotzdem ein schöner, ruhiger Ort!

  6. Ein wahrer Rapunzel Turm! Ja so etwas gibt es bei uns auch nur hat man das Dorf total in einem Stausee versenkt. Schön sieht es ja aus aber was haben die alten Dorfeinwohner davon_

  7. Very unusual, Karl. The tower looks lonely.
