As a resident of Victorian Village, I enjoy my daily commutes to and from work. It is my time to admire the beautiful, historic homes that line Neil Avenue.

Last September, I took part in the Victorian Village Tour of Homes . It was my opportunity to take a peek inside, and what I discovered what very different from what I had imagined. While each home was distinct—varying in size, age and design—the strong focus on art and modern decor both surprised and impressed me.

This Sunday presents another opportunity to step into what seems like another world. This time it is the chance for a peek inside one of Columbus’ most beloved neighborhoods: German Village . The German Village Haus and Garten Tour , celebrating its 50th Anniversary, opens the door to nine homes and four gardens in the neighborhood. With tours running from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., this can be an all-day adventure or a quick stop on your list of to-dos.

Tickets are already on sale, available at the following locations:

  • $15 advance sale – GermanVillage.com or 614.221.8888
  • $12 advance sale – All Central Ohio Kroger locations (with Kroger Plus card)
  • $20 day of Tour – Meeting Haus, 588 S. Third St.
This is the perfect opportunity to get outdoors, enjoy the summer weather and discover one of Columbus’ favorite traditions. I can’t wait to see what I’ll discover this time…
