Long Description:
[DE] Die Bordesholmer Linde wurde wahrscheinlich in der Zeit der Klostergründung vor 650 - 700 Jahren gepflanzt. Der Baum ist Teil des Wappens von Bordesholm. Jedes Jahr findet hier das Thing-Gericht statt. Der Baum hat in letzter Zeit unter Krankheiten und Umwelteinflüssen gelitten, was ein Eingreifen erforderlich machte. Drei Äste wurden abgestützt und ein Teil der Krone entfernt um die Regeneration zu ermöglichen.
1873 wurde eine Tafel an der Linde angebracht.
Vom Parkplatz aus kann man den Baum in nördlicher Richtung auf der anderen Seite der Straße erreichen.
