The Miss from Kindelsberg
When the Kindelsburg still stood on the Kindelsberg in the distant past, the young beauty lived here and waited for the return of her lover, who took part in the crusades. He promised her that as long as the linden tree was green in front of the castle gates, he would be up, love her and return. She had been waiting for three years, waiting for the return of her knight, to whom she had sworn eternal allegiance when someone else was courting her. But she explained her oath to him, and that she could not promise her hand to anyone while the linden tree was green at the gates. Then the strange knight angrily tore up the linden tree and planted a withered linden tree in the same place. But when the young lady, gray with grief, repeatedly and repeatedly rejected his wedding proposal, he stabbed her insidiously and fled. One day later, the longed-for dearest returned safely from the fight ... too late! He only had to prepare a grave for his loved one. At the foot of the Kindelsberg, of course, under a blooming linden tree.
