"Spargel" is easy to find if you live in Germany, it is more difficult living in the US. German asparagus is low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals, making it a popular indulgence, although pouring Hollandaise sauce over it makes it a very substantial, special German dinner.

Use locally-grown asparagus when possible. Once cut, asparagus must be handled properly to prevent drying. Much of the white asparagus in American supermarkets I have seen has not been kept in a moist environment and eating it would be as pleasurable as chewing twigs.
And here is some more information about it:

I live in Austria and it's asparagus season now. I had the white version 1-2 weeks ago. I just had green one today (quickly sauteed in butter) and will probably chop it into beef stock as a light side dish. I also love asparagus with sauce Hollandaise or a nice asparagus cream soup.
