The Low Countries have long held mystery and intrigue for people around the world. Over thousands of years, innumerable myths and legends have sprung out of this small corner of Europe, while many more have been created by bemused foreigners looking in from outside. There is a unique quality to this busy, little, misty swampland that has long allowed imaginations to run wild and fantasy to be embraced in the forms of stories, songs, jokes and activities. In this episode of the Low Countries Radio, we are going to explore some of the folk tales from the Low Countries. As such, we will encounter giants, magical horses, elven knights and, yes, even a boy putting his finger in a dyke to prevent a flood. So let’s go live in fantasy and wind our way through the deep, dark forest where myths and legends lay, lurking in the shadows, waiting for us.
