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.

In 1915, Moina Michael had the idea to wear red poppies on Memorial Day to honor those who lost their lives in military service to our nation. She wrote the following poem which started a tradition that spread around the world.

"Cherish too, the Poppy red
that grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies..."

"Texas is one of the oldest wine-growing states in the U.S. with vines planted in the 1650s by Franciscan priests. It's no surprise, then, that the Texas Hill Country Wine Trail, which begins on Highway 290 in Fredericksburg, has been named one of the top 10 wine destinations in the nation."

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. "
