Der Lindenbaum -- "The Linden Tree" occupies a special place in the hearts of Germans. Songs and poems have been written in its honor, and in the springtime, the fragrance of its lovely blossoms fills the air. In many ways, the Linden tree is to a German what the bluebonnet is to a Texan: a symbol of the homeland. When Ingrid Hohmann opened her restaurant in Fredericksburg, she named it Der Lindenbaum for the ancient Linden tree that grew in front of her centuries-old family home high in the Eifel Mountains of Germany. Ingrid is a professional chef who apprenticed at and graduated from the Hotel and Restaurant School at Maria Laach, one of the foremost and most prestigious in Europe. She began the restaurant as a konditorei, or bakery, featuring apfel strudel, streuselkuchen, and Black Forest cake. However, the demand for her delicious Rheinland-style lunch specials gradually expanded it into what it is today, one of the finest German restaurants in Texas. Der Lindenbaum features fine German food items not normally found on this side of the Atlantic, such as Konigsberger Klopse (a delicious dish of beef and pork meatballs in a delicate caper sauce -- the capers used in this recipe are grown in the Mediterranean area), and Rheinischer Sauerbraten (a roast, marinated for a week in a sweet/sour sauce), as well as the kinds of items most people would expect to find in a Texas-German restaurant, including the best Schnitzels on either side of the Atlantic.

The atmosphere at Der Lindenbaum is gemutlich: comfortable, cozy, pleasant, and friendly. Please come see us. Open 7 Days A Week from 11:00 am - 10:00 pm. Located near the Nimitiz Museum.

WILD BACON on the hoof! Here's a beautiful bluebonnet photo that was shared by Joe and Barbara, from their visit to the Willow City Loop! But what's that snuffling around in the bluebonnets... it's a feral HOG! Be careful... they can be aggressive, especially when there's a group of them! Texas has a rapidly growing feral hog population which is causing significant problems around the state! You can HELP! Eat WILD Pig! It's DELICIOUS!

He alone is the maker
Of all things near and far;
He paints the wayside flower,
He lights the evening star;
The winds and waves obey Him,
By Him the birds are fed;
Much more to us, His children,
He gives our daily bread.

We thank thee then, O Father,
For all things bright and good,
The seed time and the harvest,
Our life, our health, our food.

Our Greatest Fear is our LIGHT not our darkness.
Our deepest fear is NOT that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our LIGHT not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that IS within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people
Permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

Texas Hill Country #1
on The New York Times
31 Places to Go This Summer

"Who needs Europe? The Texas Hill Country, west of Austin and north of San Antonio, might be the next best thing to crossing the Atlantic. The region is lush, colorful and, unlike much of the pancake-flat state, dotted with beautiful green hills that are evocative of Tuscany or the south of France. Moreover, the region is speckled with 22 wineries that buzz with food and music festivals year round. And towns like Fredericksburg offer a taste of the Old World, with German-style biergartens and schnitzelhauser. "
