Experience the Best Food in Covington, KY’s German Village

If you’re looking to explore Covington’s Mainstrasse Village and savor some of the delicious local fare, you won’t want to miss this tour! We’ll visit five locally-owned restaurants and even meet a few of the owners and chefs.

You’ll enjoy handcrafted specialty pizza, German pretzels with beer cheese,  and a variety of other dishes. And you’ll love the sample of craft beer offered!

During our stroll through the neighborhood, hear the history of the German immigrants who settled in Covington and the creation of this charming village.

We’ll visit a 100-foot tall Glockenspiel in Goebel Park and visit the town plaza showcasing the Goose Girl Fountain. We’ll walk under a tree-lined plaza learning the origins of this historical village, the demise, and the revitalization.

You’ll also receive a food guide plus advice from a local guide who knows the city. Our promise is to leave you full – both mind and body!

Do you like to party? So do we. If you desire, alcoholic beverages are available to purchase at various stops.

PLEASE NOTE: Children 5 + under do not receive any food tastings. Parents may bring a snack.
