Did you know that the devil still haunts the Church of our Lady? As another church was being built in Munich, the devil decided to destroy this one. After the Church was built, but not yet consecrated, the devil sneaked through the large gate of the entrance hall. He looked curiously at the construction and began to laugh loudly, because he had noticed that there were no windows (he was in fact standing at the exact place where all the windows are obscured by pillars). Triumphant with joy he stomped down on the ground, left a footprint in the pavement and then left the Church. When the Church was completed and consecrated, the devil saw the masses streaming to the new Church. From outside he discovered that the Church did indeed have windows. When he realised that he was mistaken, angrily he turned himself into a bellowing fierce wind, and tried to collapse the building. However he did not succeed. To this day „he storms” around the house of God.
