On the 'Asparagus Cycling Trail' in Burgdorf (Germany)

It did not occur to me until I went sniffing around on the path of the German white asparagus that there could be a tourist theme around it.
Carter Dougherty (Globespotters) wet my appetite on the topic with Asparagus, Asparagus Everywhere (live and on the scene from Frankfurt).

Saxony seems to be the place to be for while asparagus lovers (according to Destination Germany).

I learned that spears are harvested from late April to the end of June.
Want to take a close look at the region, the "Lower Saxony Asparagus Route, along with the Asparagus Cycling Trail that runs in parallel and starts and finishes in Burgdorf, is a "must" for any visitor to the region" they say. The circuit runs for 750km and seems to go by the name of Niedersächsische Spargelstrasse (my illustration below, from their site).


More trivia: "The town of Nienburg elects its own Asparagus Queen at the asparagus market to honour this finest of vegetables".

So are you ready to hop on the bike after a plate of white asparagus with hollandaise sauce washed down by a glass of German white wine?

Has anyone taken that road trip?
