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. 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.

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
