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.

I am sorry, but what is the appeal of this place? I tried a few delis and I failed to find any location worth mentioning.
