This is one of the best-known legends in Liechtenstein.
In the village of Eschen there lived a stout woman, who always carried a large wooden chest on her back. Hidden in this chest was a small man. Whenever the woman entered an inn, she would ask for the chest to be placed in a room. There, the man would climb out of the chest and steal everything of value.
