You‘d expect the Seven Dwarfs to come around the corner up here anytime...
Legend has it that the farmers on Hirzel sold their souls to the devil in return for more land. The devil took the easy way out and just pushed the earth up from inside. When the farmers realised the extra land was steep and of no great use, they felt cheated on and planted a linden tree on top of every hill. With the linden trees, being the „trees of love“, the devil would avoid the area in future.
Obviously, it was glaciers forming the landscape up on Hirzel, the story is still kind of nice.
