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

This is a great place to walk around. The homes are beautiful and quaint. There’s an awesome bookstore with 32 (!) rooms, quite a few restaurants, and a few coffee shops. The Schiller Park is also very pretty with lots of flowers and a cute...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.

I met a friend and we spent the day in the German Village. We stopped at two different coffee shops, a book store, had lunch at Schmidt's and enjoyed the biggest cream puff ever, shopped around the restaurant, had a Jeni's ice cream. There are...More
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

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.
