The town of Winden is shrouded in a dense forest. The forest is a significant location in the history of the town. This influence is seen in the names of places such as the Waldhotel Winden or on signs of institutions such as the Winden Rest Home. The town's coat of arms displays three trees with deep roots and is emblazoned on the logos of such entities as the Winden Police and the Amtsgericht Winden (Winden Local Court).
