Near the castle remains, just past the swing bridge, stands bronze sculpture of ghostly silhouette, which just stepped out of the water on the shore line. 2.4 meters in height, the sculpture hold its own secret – everyone that comes near the frightful sculpture will be greeted.
According to the legend, in year 1595 one of the Klaipėda Castle guard, Hans von Heidi, saw a supernatural ghost. Ungodly visitor warned the guard that the city’s supplies of grain and timber may be insufficient, and just like it appeared – vanished.
