The 52nd annual German Village Haus und Garten Tour awes visitors by taking them through 233 acres of fragrant gardens, historical architecture, and award-winning restorations of Columbus's German Village, a neighborhood settled by 19th-century German immigrants. The oldest historic tour on the national register, the Haus und Garten Tour showcases the quality historic preservation of its picturesque red-brick homes and iron fences. The festivities will include entertaining festivities such as musical performances in Frank Fetch Park, as well as a 2 p.m. performance of The Scarlet Pimpernel, a classic play about the French Reign of Terror and the unfortunate result of sun overexposure. Stroll down petal-lined walking paths or visit the shops and restaurants of Marketplatz, Germantown's signature shopping forum. All proceeds of the day's event support the historic preservation, civic, and educational programs of the German Village Society.

German Village Society

As the oldest historic tour on the national register, the German Village Society's Annual Haus und Garten Tour sends feet pattering across 233 acres of historic landmarks, enchanting gardens, and award-winning restorations. A year ago, the daylong celebration drew a total of more than 6,000 visitors, and this year, an even larger crowd is expected to be on hand to ogle and coax autographs from the 13 homes and gardens scheduled for display.

Tour-takers can meander along the route at their own pace, stopping to explore the shops and eateries in the marketplatz or to peek into classic abodes, which homeowners have transformed into chic, opulent spaces ideal for modern living or showcasing the latest trends in wool socks for coffee tables. In addition to the lineup of architectural stars, the tour will also be stocked with various live performances, including a rendition of The Scarlet Pimpernel in Schiller Park at 2 p.m.

It's great to tour the houses! But it's overpriced. Glad I had the Groupon.

I took a class on old book repair there taught by Lisa Omer of European Papers. Lisa is a great instructor; it was very interesting and the 4 hours flew by! She has lots of nifty unique items for sale during her workshops, too. She's only there when teaching workshops but you can google European Papers & see her many types of interesting workshops and buy items from her website.
