The Legend of the Name of the Plaz

c8FPo5ZN520_kopiaThere is a sweet story about the naming of the Pfalz region. People tell the following about it: Once God counted all his stars because he wanted to know whether all of them are on their place. However, while he was counting he had a misadventure: his most beautiful star fell down. When the Pfalz Landschaftpeople on earth saw the new area which emerges by the fall of the star they prayed to God to let them this place. The Lord laughed and said: „Dann b’halts“ which sounded similar to the word „Pfalz“. From that time on the name of this sunny and friendly place is Pfalz.
