Fresh asparagus from the Münsterland.

The Münsterland is renowned for its wide range of places to eat, from country inns serving traditional dishes to Michelin-starred restaurants focused on regional produce. But come April, one dish is always on the menu: asparagus. And it generally remains there until June 24, Midsummer's Day, also known as Spargelsilvester ('Asparagus Eve'). Then its brief season is over and it's time to look forward to next year's crop. The best asparagus farms and farm shops can be found on the North Rhine-Westphalia Asparagus Route.
