The old Lime Tree

The lime tree of almost 900 years in the old village centre of Naters makes each inhabitant pride, since it is one of the oldest trees in Switzerland. It served as a meeting point for the regulation of private and public affairs. The surrounding wall served as a podium for speakers and the soapstone fundament of a “Prague pillar” emphasizes the importance of the lime tree square for the community. Since the old lime tree is completely hollow inside it was fixed with anchor spans and received a specific treatment.
