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, charcuterie, coffee with homemade desserts, plus various authentic Kentucky dishes. And you’ll love the beer and wine 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, a list of restaurants with coupons, plus advice from a local guide who knows the city. Our promise is to leave you full – both mind and body!
