GERMAN VILLAGE IS AN OLD WORLD STYLE NEIGHBORHOOD

German Village, located just south of downtown Columbus, is an Old World style neighborhood. Originally built by German immigrants, the location was chosen to have access to the Scioto River for their breweries. The area has been renovated and is now a trendy, upscale community.

While there are many fine restaurants in German Village, my family and I recently visited Schmidt’s Sausage Haus. They are famous for their humongous cream puffs and Bahama Mama sausages. We happened to be there on a football Saturday, hence, some of the clothes and flags that you’ll see in the slides. Remember, it’s Columbus and this IS Buckeye territory.

Normally, I’ve posted individual photos in this photoblog. But I took so many photos of the unique homes, that I decided to provide them as a slideshow. I recommend clicking on the “Full” screen view for best resolution.
