Established in the early 18th century, the neighborhood was settled by a large influx of Germans between 1840 and 1860, at a time when the word 'squalor' would have been the polite way to describe the area. Fast forward a hundred years, when a lot of South Columbus was being torn down and redesigned, the community invested tremendous effort into preserving their heritage, resulting in one of the most charming neighborhoods you'll see in the city today.

Park your car somewhere and then walk. Strolling is the only way to navigate the narrow cobblestone streets and alleys here. The architecture is a mix of various European styles, and predominantly made of brick - take pictures of the lovely homes. Definitely step into the historic Book Loft store. The neighborhood is perhaps the city's finest food district - Schmidt’s Sausage Haus is the local favourite restaurant. There are some unique art galleries worth checking out. Walk west, and you're in the Brewery District. In Schiller Park, you'll find open air Shakespeare performances.
