Quick Details

Experience the Best Food in a charming German Village

Tour Overview

Bring your appetite for this 3-hour walking and eating tour in Mainstrasse Village located in Covington, Kentucky, just five minutes from downtown Cincinnati. Linger in the German village, soaking up the charm of European architecture, a glockenspiel and fountain. Indulge in local treats, such as Bavarian pretzels, beer cheese, pizza, waffle with fried chicken, ice cream dessert and  a tasting of local craft beer.

Is This Tour Right For Me?

I enjoy walking as long as it’s not too far.  The Mainstrasse Village Tour is a walking tour.  While we walk over the course of 3 hours, it is less than one mile in distance. We walk a short bit, sit, dine and repeat.  It’s one of the easiest walking tours.

I’ve lived in Cincinnati my whole life, but rarely visit Northern Kentucky. Local residents and visitors enjoy visiting the south shores of the Ohio River.  Covington KY has 11 historic neighborhoods with a wide variety of local restaurants, bourbon bars, breweries and distilling companies.  On the Mainstrasse Tour,  learn about the best spots in town!

I’m visiting Cincinnati for the first time.  This is the perfect Saturday morning tour to start your visit!  You will be well armed with plenty of information about both cities, so you can make the most of your stay.

I’m looking for a food tour to take my whole family on.  The Mainstrasse Village tour is great for all ages, especially older members who enjoy history.  Covington, like Cincinnati has a strong German history with beautiful architecture.

I like the option of ordering a cocktail, craft beer or glass of wine along the way. We enjoy a small glass of a local beer at our third stop.  Guests are welcome to purchase alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages at most of the restaurants.  Ice water is always served to quench your thirst.


WERE DO WE MEET?  We meet at 9:45am in front of our first tasting location, Cedar at 701 Main St, Covington, KY 41011.

WHERE DO I PARK?  There is a pay parking lot behind Cedar Restaurant.  The parking lot address is 417 W. 7th Street,  Covington KY 41011.

HOW LONG IS THE DISTANCE ON THE TOUR? We walk less than one mile over the course of 3 hours.  We rate this walk as easy due to the level surfaces, tree-lined streets, and park benches.
