German doesn’t recogonise a difference between shadow and shade, it’s both Schatten to Germans.
I happen to come across this lovely spot today. To sit in the shade of two majestic linden trees
and look onto the 1200-year-old Einhard basilica, one of very few buildings dating back to the Carolingan area north of the Alps,
and then to go inside and marvel at the shadows which were the same ones looked on by the visitors of the basilica when it was newly built.
