A traditional Swabian stew. The name "Gaisburger Marsch" is said to derive from the fact that in the 19th century Stuttgart officer cadets developed a taste for a hearty ox meat stew with spaetzle and potatoes, which was served at the "Bäckerschmide" restaurant in nearby Gaisburg. Since the officer candidates had to follow a certain military marching order on their way from the Berger barracks to this inn, the dish ultimately bore the name "Gaisburger Marsch". According to another version, the Gaisburg men allegedly became prisoners of war and their wives were allowed to provide them with one bowl of food a day. Everything that tasted good and was nutritious was put into this bowl. With this, the women then marched to their husbands every day. In the Stuttgart district of Gaisburg, which gives the dish its name, the history of this dish is celebrated once a year in the summer months with a festival lasting several days.
