Sheila payed the 1000 year old Lime-Tree in Högling a visit. She enjoyed the cozy inside of the hollow in the tree in the center of the village Högling. Assizes were Held under the old tree. The old church St. Martin near by dates back to at least 803 ac when it was mentioned. A local custom is the „Högeln“ on parish fair monday where new citizens or farm-servants were wellcomed by throwing them into the air 3 times, than pouring water over them. Then they would receive a branch of the Lime-Tree. After that the event was celebrated with music, dancing and „Schmalznudeln„, a delightful bavarian bakery.
The „Salzstraße“ (Salt Street) from Bad Reichenhall to Augsburg (and through Munich) was running through the Center of the village.
