Herzlich Willkommen!


German Village is a 223-acre historic residential district, just south of downtown. It was settled in the early-to-mid-19th century by a large number of German immigrants, who at one time comprised as much as a third of the city's entire population. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 30, 1974, becoming the largest privately funded preservation district on the list, and in 2007, was made a Preserve America Community by theWhite House. With loads of charm, brick roads, bars and amazing authentic restaurants it is a destination spot and a happy home to many.
