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

I wouldn't advise going to German Village just for the sake of going...have a restaurant or bar in mind. It's a cute neighborhood with Columbus history but after a few minutes of exploring I had seen enough. Worth a stop but not a must see...More
It's always a special treat when we get to visit German Village. The restored brick homes are beautiful and line the brick streets back to back.
Lots of great little shops and dining in the area. The park is also a nice place to relax...More
Spent the day exploring the German Village. It’s was COLD but we walked around the cobblestone streets and listened to several of the informative history anecdotes that are shown on some of the streets. Great visitor center with lots of information.
The historic German Village district in Columbus is a must see if visiting the area. With its brick streets and quaint houses, you will love this charming area. You will find restaurants sprinkled throughout the village along with a large central park.
If you want to visit Columbus Ohio, you may like to stroll around and get a sense
of German influence in the area during the last century. There are many coffee shops,
bars and restaurants to enjoy. Of particular interest may be the Schmidt's Sausage...More
My wife and I recently visited the German Village. We chose to park on a back street and stroll around at leisure. The houses were decorated for Christmas, and had a very enchanted feel.. watch your step on the brick sidewalks, as there are quite...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.
