Ensign Schrobenhausen

Elizabeth knew about Schrobenhausen before we actually visited it. The reason is asparagus. Elizabeth can eat tons of vegetables, salads, apples, grapes and French fries.
One day, we purchased asparagus from Schrobenhausen - white asparagus.
I told her that she must peel it before preparation. She got almost mad when I told her things which she thought she already knew it and when she served her asparagus it tasted bitter.
Naturally, she had prepared it in her way and even she could not eat it.

Walk along the trees. This is the former defense line of the town.
We only did a part of this tour but I am sure if we come back we will complete the rest.

Finally she admitted that she was only used to green asparagus. (out of a tin?) Friends of ours were laughing and invited us to an asparagus dinner at their home which we all enjoyed.
A few months later, we visited Schrobenhausen which is famous for this vegetable.
When we were in Schrobenhausen I asked Elizabeth if she would be interested in visiting the European Asparagus Museum. She rejected. Later I found out that she thought I was joking. The museum is real and provides many information related to asparagus.
Schrobenhausen is not only famous because of it's history and the asparagus, the little town is now also associated with art.
The well known portrait painter Franz Lenbach was born here in 1836. Many famous people of his time were his customer, so Pope Leo XIII and Otto von Bismarck.

Franz Lenbach later lived in Munich and became the title "Ritter Franz von Lenbach".
If you want to learn more about this artist and his work visit his birth house which hosts a gallery showing many of his portraits as well as some earlier paintings.
