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.

Texas Bluebonnet field at Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area near Spicewood, Texas!


2014 Texas Bluebonnet Field of Dreams
We are declaring the Texas Bluebonnet field at Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area near Spicewood, Texas, the 2014 Field of Dreams. Everything blue in the photo is bluebonnets, and yes, those black specks are people. Our photo doesn&#039;t do it justice. Photo by bluebonnetlove.com. — at <a href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/Muleshoe-Bend-Recreation-Area/112176245535302?ref=stream" data-ft="&#123;&quot;tn&quot;:&quot;P&quot;&#125;" data-hovercard="/ajax/hovercard/page.php?id=112176245535302&amp;extragetparams=%7B%22directed_target_id%22%3Anull%7D">Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area</a>.
We've declared the Texas Bluebonnet field(s) at LCRA's Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area near Spicewood, Texas, this year's Texas Bluebonnet Field of Dreams. The bluebonnets line the shoreline of Lake Travis for at least a mile, if not more, and at times continue as far as the eye can see. It is literally an ocean of blue. And since no one photo or video can do this field justice, we've created this album to contain its beauty as best as we mere humans can capture it. Enjoy!

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. "
