German Village is Columbus’ most historic and picturesque neighborhood, full of cobblestone streets lined with beautifully restored brick cottages and meticulously maintained gardens. Join us for our walking tour of German Village, where we’ll share the sights, flavors, and history of the largest privately restored neighborhood in the country.
As the home to some of Columbus’ finest dining establishments, Columbus Food Adventures will give you tastes of the best food German Village has to offer. The stops on our German Village food tour include the venerable G Michael’s Bistro with its seasonal low country inspired menu, and Harvest Pizzeria (featured in ‘Where to Eat Pizza’, the expert’s guide to the best pizza places in the world),. We’ll also visit Katzinger’s, a German Village institution that has been featured on the Food Network’s show ‘The Best Thing I Ever Ate’ and of course Schmidt’s, featured on “Man vs Food”. No visit to German Village is complete without stopping for a treat at Pistacia Vera. Our tour concludes at Barcelona, where we’ll sample some paella and enjoy a cool refreshing glass of their signature sangria.
