Not sure if anyone touched on this i cant be bothered looking through all the posts, but they made a 10 euro silver coin in appreciation of untersberg and they put 2 gnomes on it pretty cool..
also the gnome is pointing at something in the mountain, then on the flip side of the coin is King Charlamagne looking sad, and the gnome has brought in the boy to see him.edit on 23-1-2013 by olli123321 because: change of information
The subterranean inhabitants, mr kirks first chapter, 'of the subterranean inhabitants,' naturally suggests the recent speculations of mr. Macritchies. The gist of mr macritchies testimony of tradition is that there once was a race of earth-dwellers in this island; that their artificial caves still exist; that this people survive in popular memory as "the legendary feens," and as the pechts of popular tales, in which they are regarded as dwarfs. "The pechs were unco wee bodies, but terrible strang." Here, then, it might be thought that we have the origin of fairy beliefs. There really was, on this showing, a dwarf race, who actually did live in the "fairy-hills," or Howes, now commonly looked on as sepulchral monuments.
What follows is merely an example of the folktales of Alderley, taken from the more anecdotal material in order to show the variety and the richness inherent in this form of oral history. One night in about January 1941, Eric Garner (b.1934) (father of Alan garner) was playing with two friends on the Edge. They stopped to rest on Stormy Point. And they heard music in the air and under the ground. Eric has lived all his life below Saddlebole, but he has not heard the music again. Roy Pearson (b.1932) was shown by his father the point near the Old Quarry where, his father said, if he were to put his ear to the ground, he would sometimes hear the knights and their horses stirring in their sleep. In 1843, Louisa Stanley wrote: "The people living on the Edge persuade themselves that they hear music under the ground." (Stanley, Louisa, Alderley Edge and its Neighbourhood [J. Swinnerton, Macclesfield, 1843, p.28]).
In 1993, at night, between The Wizard Inn and Beacon Lodge, a taxi driver had to swerve to avoid what he described as an abnormally tall and thin man, dressed in dark clothing and with long white hair and beard, who walked into the road in front of him. The driver stopped, but could find nobody. The taxi was on its way from Macclesfield to Mobberley. All of above From www.alderleyedge.manchester.museum...

In his monologue on February 2, 1942, Hitler said that his residence in Obersalzberg - Berghof, was "Gralsburg". This indicates a certain connection to the Holy Grail and the Templars. Just a few days before the air strikes hit Obersalzberg some local people reported seeing strange SS convoys heading toward the Zillertal Alps (a mountain range on the Austrian and Italian border) where they, on their way to the Schleigeiss Glacier, allegedly buried some boxes deep in the ice. Some esoteric authors write that the Holy Grail is here. The buses to the Kehlsteinhaus depart from a (lower) parking place near the Obersalzberg"s Documentation Center. The ruins of Berghof, the Hitler"s residence, can be seen after a five minutes walk if you follow the path directed toward the left when coming out of the main entrance of the Documentation Center (take the left turn on the intersection after a few minutes walk away from the Documentation Center, as the path to the right will bring you to a hotel). The Berchtesgaden"s surroundings conceal many mysteries. A few of them are associated with the Untersberg massif between Berchtesgaden and Salzburg. The Untersberg is a source of many otherworldly legends about underground people and dwarfs. The Templars had allegedly built their secret temple for goddess Isais here and Men of the Black Stone allegedly organized their secret meetings here. There are many reports of disappearances on the Untersberg and accounts similar to those we hear from the Bermuda Triangle - the time on people"s watches shifts, or people completely disappear. Some esoteric authors write that the Eagle"s Nest was built with secret societies" knowledge and that its positions are not random. The 124-meter long tunnel and the 124-meter long lift shaft made in the rock must give you a hunch that the number 124 was not randomly chosen. Perhaps we cross here the threshold of theomatics - a science that deals with "numbers of God"s mathematics". Albeit Nazis totally turned away from God with their heinous deeds, much of their occult beliefs have still remained unexposed to the public. Theomatics works with the numerical interpretation of the Bible. This science is based upon the fact that every letter of the Greek and Hebrew alphabet has its number. In this concept, the number 124 is for Eden.
