Cenotaph and tree church
After the First World War, a memorial was erected on the Bromsberg plateau to commemorate the fallen and missing Spangenbergers. The memorial goes back to the plans of the Spangenberg architect and later mayor Theobald Fenner . 52 linden trees with their trunks and crowns form the floor plan of a church. An iron cross protrudes from the choir and is visible from afar.
In 2009 the partially rotten linden trees were renewed. The tree church was cleared of rubbish and restored to its original shape by cutting back wildly sown bushes and weeds. The tree church was renewed on an initiative of the Spangenberg citizen, Ulrich Salzmann.
