The flowers have a very pleasent fragrance and attracts not only human
beings but many insects.
Wood is soft and is used in carving, used in churches especially for
Altars, for making furniture or veneers.
Flowers attract honeybees and the goldcolor honey has typical flavour of
Linde. Dried flowers are used to prepare tea which is good against cold.
Linden-tea with a little bit of lindenhoney, a good book to read, in a
rocking chair near the fireplace, listening to the crackling of the
fire. Winter can come.
In former days there used to be at least one Linde in every village. The
village court was held under the lindentree, so the tree was called
court-tree. After an epidemy or a war a peace-linde was planted. In one
of the tree-walks I learnt that many existing lindentrees in our area
were planted to commemorate the german-french war in 1870/71.
In Schluttenbach in Southgermany there is one linde supposed to be more
than 1000 years old.
Linde is a very popular avenue tree. and the road is typically called
"unter den Linden" (under the lindentrees) More or less in every city or
village there is one "unter den Linden". Lindenallee, atleast a
drugstore "linden apotheke".
One of the very famous "unter den Linden" is in Berlin. Festivals,
Demonstrations, Talks by politicians, public viewing Football,
everything takes place "unter den Linden"
"Unter den Linden is the oldest shopping street of the city and
stretches from the Brandenburg Gate to the castle bridge. The first
trees were planted in 1647 on order of the Elector Friedrich Wilhelm."
One finds many stories and poems dedicated to Linde. One very famous
volksong is "Am Brunnen vor dem Tore, da steht ein Lindenbaum" and more
or less everyone can sing it.
