I lived in Germany during the 1950's and did visit the Unterwald area.
We´re not actually talking about the Unterwald area but about the Untersberg area.
It appears that the UFO crowd in Germany is trying to remake their dwarves into Greys.
The Legends I quoted in previous posts referring to grey-skinned, big-headed dwarfs originate in 15th to 18th Century.

I did see the later material, and knew that they were "ugly"... but I never before came across a reference to them having gray skin. However, given that miners often have grayish skin, I shouldn't be too surprised.
The whole area was heavily mined since prehistoric times.

One of the most famous ones is the story of the Brocken, a mountain with the Harz Mountains. It is said that every year on "Walpurgis Night," the night of April 30th, the devil and his flock of disciples, witches, warlocks, etc. gather on the Brocken -- also called Blocksberg -- to dance naked around a huge fire and have an orgy there.
In the year 1669 a peasant from the village of Reblingen who was hauling grain to Nordhausen was taken into the mountain by a little dwarf. He was told to empty out his grain and allowed to fill his sacks with gold in its place. He saw the emperor sitting there entirely motionless.
In addition, a dwarf led a shepherd into the mountain who had once played a tune on his flute that had pleased the emperor. The emperor stood up and asked: "Are ravens still flying around the mountain?" When the shepherd answered "yes," the Kaiser responded: "Then I must sleep for another hundred years."
In this marvelous mountain sits Emperor Karl, a golden crown on his head, his scepter in his hand, and accompanied by other princely and noble lords. He went into a trance at Great Walserfeld, and has kept the same form that he had during his mortal life. His beard is grey and long, entirely covering his golden breastplate. On special occasions he divides his beard into two parts, half on his right side and half on his left, each tied with a precious pearl band. The emperor has a keen and profound look, and he is friendly and sociable toward all of his subjects who walk back and forth with him across a beautiful meadow. No one knows why he is there and what he intends to do. These remain mysteries of God.
Franz Sartori claims that it is Emperor Karl V., but others say that it is Frederick, who sits at a table around which his beard has grown more than two times. As soon as the the beard has reached the last corner of the table for the third time, the last days of the earth will have arrived. The Antichrist will appear; a battle will be fought on the fields at Wals; angels will sound their trumpets; and Judgment Day will have begun.
