Spend A Day in German Village
With its cobblestone roads, gawk-worthy homes, and beautiful landscaping, German Village is truly one of the most quaint neighborhoods in downtown Columbus. Here are the TOP 10 attractions for you to check out:
1. Schiller Park: This perfect park, located smack dab in the middle of German Village, has a great pond with a bridge where it's common to see people feeding ducks, playing with motorized boats, or having a romantic walk (or just a nice chat with a friend). There's also unique landscaping and lots of statues peppered throughout the park, including a huge one of Mr. Schiller himself. In summer months, an amphitheatre comes alive with theater productions. It's free and kid-friendly!!
2. Schmidt's Sausage Haus Und Restaurant: When visiting German Village, you must eat at Schmidt's Sausage Haus where the food is authentically German, the waitstaff dons German garb, and the restaurant itself is on the national registry of historic places! Schmidt's is known for its Bahama Mama sausage, which I suggest you enjoy as part of the Autobahn Buffet. They are also known for their FAMOUS cream puffs. SAVE ROOM FOR THE CREAM PUFFS!
