On the Delbrücker Spargelroute, you will come across the asparagus fields and the asparagus farms of the Delbrücker Land. While on your asparagus cycle road, take a break and visit the asparagus farms of Delbrück. Convince yourself of the quality and the high demands, the farms have to meet. Please pay attention that the asparagus season, according to the weather, starts halfway or at the end of April and ends the 24th of June with the so-called “Spargelsilvester”. Of course, you can cycle on this route the whole year long and it’s always a paradise for cyclists.
The history of the asparagus of Delbrück started 60 years ago. 30 years later, corporate cultivation was the result of the first private attempts. Nowadays, seven companies harvest over 350 tons of asparagus every year. This pleasant development has several reasons: throughout the years it turned out that the sandy soil, the groundwater proportions and the ground in Delbrück that is rich in minerals, play a decisive role to improve the flavour of the asparagus.
