Fräkmündt was the old name of a mysterious mountain in the heart of Switzerland which is connected to uncountable sagas. It was re-named to Pilatus after a legend, telling that the corpse of Pontius Pilatus was thrown into a lake on the eastern mountainside in order to tame his restless and furious spirit. Also, many sources speak about dragons living in caves inside the mountain, the wild hunt haunting its chasms and witches roaming the woods beneath it.
