Schenklengsfeld was mentioned for the first time around the year 800. Perhaps even from this time comes the linden tree on the former market square, which, estimated at least over 1000 years, is considered the oldest lime tree in Germany. It used to be a court of law under the Linde, and also served as a venue for dance and annual market events.
Even today, the lime blossom festival or the evening under the lime tree takes place here every year in mid-June. It will not surprise anyone that the municipal coat of arms of Schenklengsfeld carries a linden branch. The linden tree is the center and the landmark of the community. Her age is estimated at about 1200 years. The circumference of the four parts of the trunk is about 18 meters, the outer wall ring with its wooden support frame under the mighty crown has a circumference of 65 meters.
