Lindschied is a small town near Bad Schwalbach in Hesse, Germany. The town lies in the hills of the Taunus and has about 600 inhabitants.

In the time of the Roman Empire, the border-wall called Limes went through Lindschied's boundaries. Today, many remnants can be found, such as parts of this old wall itself and remains of Roman watchtowers.

In Lindschied, the co-founder of the Anheuser-Busch brewery, Adolphus Busch, built his mansion "Villa Lilly", which is named after his wife Elisabeth Anheuser. In 1913, Adolphus Busch died in this mansion.
