Description

In the middle of the small churchyard of the Protestant Church, the Friedenslinde stands on the Square of Encounters. Like many other peace trees throughout Germany, this lime tree became a sign of hope and peace with the neighboring country in 1871 after the victory over Emperor Napoleon III and the end of the German-French War.

In the idyllic churchyard you can also find the sculpture "Encounters" by Helga Sauvageaut and historical gravestones by the Lords of Zeiskam, the mayor Gerog Jakob Kern (died 1807) and the first pastor of the parish, Hieronymus Klingeisen, who entrusted the parish in the 16th century, as well as his wife.
