A highway bridge over Interstate 70 is all that separates the German Village Historic District from downtown Columbus, but as one looks east from the interstate, the difference between old and new is glaring. A 20+ story structure sits just north of...more

The German Village is a part of the city that has retained the 19 century German architecture in the whole area. Is peaceful to walk. Be careful sidewalks in some streets are uneven. The Frank Fetch Park is a small nice park. They have a...More
The district is very nice and I've spent more then an hour strolling through its streets. Don't forget the Schiller park on the other side from the center. Quite narrow cobbled streets with many small houses, some of which are quite picturesque or have very...More

We stopped first at the visitor center and watched a brief movie to educate ourselves, received a map and bought for 7 dollars a self guided walking tour brochure. The brochure guides guests through 2 loop walks about a mile each. Lots of interesting information...More
Understand Columbus German immigrants. The house and streets are brick. An residential area that is visitor friendly. Great restaurants and shops. Don’t miss the bookstore. It is hard to explain but floors of all types of treasures. The selection and assortment of gifts. There is...More

I would not park in a business parking lot unless you are patronizing the business. Towing regulations are posted and do occur. There is no large public or private parking lot; this is essentially a neighborhood; many streets are brick and have parking on both sides, becoming one lane. I would drive around a bit: north/south on 3rd or Mohawk, from the freeway to Whittier, to see shops, restaurants, architecture that’s of interest to you, then find a parking space (note: some have time limits... no meters, but time limits.) it’s unlikely you would want to stay in one for more than a couple hours at a time. Schiller Park is nice enough and there is some parking around it, but it’s at the south end of the area. Be careful of slippery, uneven streets. Also, some more dicey neighborhoods are just a block or so from the village... indeed, there’s always some discussion about where German Village ends....be as sensible as you would be in any urban area. Maybe it’s from High Street to Parsons Avenue, east to west, but maybe it’s smaller....

Schmidts is iconic and you can't go wrong. It can be busy on the weekends and very loud. However, if you want upscale, hit up lindeys or barcelonas. If you want middle of the road prices with top notch food, pop over to... More
Schmidts is iconic and you can't go wrong. It can be busy on the weekends and very loud. However, if you want upscale, hit up lindeys or barcelonas. If you want middle of the road prices with top notch food, pop over to rockmill tavern. (On the edge of German village and the brewery district) Can't go wrong with any of the above.
