Since June 2008, the town of Wittenburg has been a member of the "Legends and Fairy Tales Route" association. Like all the other member towns, Wittenburg has its own original fairy tale character: the legendary Undine at her enchanted spring.
On the rampart in Wittenburg, near the Bürgerpark, a small stream ripples quietly: the Undine Spring. According to legend, a fairy named Undine once promised a man eternal happiness in love if he swore fidelity to her. The man accepted the promise and pledged his fidelity. Later, however, he married another woman and Undine punished him with death. But his death did not give Undine any satisfaction, on the contrary. Even dead unhappy about what had happened, after the funeral she turned into a spring on the man's grave. In this form she still embraces her darling with friendly arms.
In 2010, as part of the membership in the association "Legends and Fairy Tales Route", a life-size wooden statue of Undine was placed at the spring, which was previously made in just two days in front of the historic town hall of the town.
