There is a lot to draw your attention in German Village.  The area has history and charm.  The area hosts the iconic Schmidt’s Sausage Haus, the original Max & Erma’s, Lindey’s, Pistacia Vera, Katzingers, Harvest Pizzeria and more.  There are a few places not food related, but the most notable and dearest to my heart is The Book Loft, one of the best bookstores in country for character and charm as well as their stock.  Do yourself a favor and check their website for coupons – I always forget and always remember as soon as I come home with my purchases.

The walkway to the main entrance is covered with Hallwood Brick Pavers – most are upside down but they are in good shape and have withstood the wear and tear of millions of feet over the years.  I can not think of another spot in Columbus with so many Hallwood Block’s to look at.  There is also a random Haydenville Bullseye sidewalk paver placed in the middle of the walkway.  Hallwood was a Columbus block and brick company.

There are plenty of bricks in German Village and they add to the character of the area for sure.  Maybe one day I will host a Columbus Brick Adventures Tour of the streets between 3rd and 6th Streets.
