One of the biggest mountains in the Siebenbund. It is famous for a large, subterranean lake in its center in which a gargantuan fish lives - the so-called "Alter Peter" ("Old Peter"). This fish is nearly a mile in length, and has to bite its own tail so that it can fit into the lake. Whenever it lets go of the tail, the valleys below experience floods, earthquakes, and avalanches. Consequently, the local authorities have posted guards at all known entrances to the cave systems beneath the mountain, so that nobody can disturb the fish.

It is unknown how precisely Alter Peter survives in its current location.
