The Krautwächtershäusel

From the Geierturm (Vulture Tower) of the Hohensalzburg fortress in Salzburg (Austria), one can see this house sitting in a field of green right at a cross-road. The area is the Krauthügel and the house is the Krautwächtershäusel (roughly translated as the gardener’s house) – as per the legend, the house was originally built in 1380s and the gardener living here would watch over the fields of the nearby Abbey of St. Peter.

Quite pretty, I’d say, for a gardener’s house.
