About
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

German Village is a wonderful area of Columbus to explore. There are lots of shops (Helen Winnemore's, The Red Stable, Winan's chocolates & coffee..), cafes (Pistacia Vera), and of course, Schiller Park. Kossuth St. has a lot of cute shops to look at, I'd walk...More

So glad we stopped here. We walked around for about an hour waiting for a table at Schmidt’s Sausage Haus. Extremely cute gift shops. Schmidt’s is fantastic if you like German Food.

German Village is neat to visit and take a walk or just drive around looking at all the tiny German houses. There isn't a whole lot to choose from as far as shops and restaurants but what is there is FABULOUS. The roads are paved...More

We drove into German Village not knowing what to expect. Brick roads that are very narrow. Lots of cars parked on the streets. Each street has something to offer. Either a restaurant, coffee house, bar, or just pretty houses. Nice area

This is a pretty good sized part of town. It has cute shops and well maintained homes. Restaurants reflect the ethnic food you expect.

Quaint village with cobblestone streets, gas street lights, and excellent food. Recommend Schmidt's and Fox in the snow and the book loft.

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... 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... More
