2019 PreTour Theme: “Brick by Brick : 60 Years of German Village Stories”

Welcome to the 60th Annual Haus und Garten Tour presented by Vutech | Ruff, HER Realtors

For well over half a century, the final weekend in June has marked the German Village Society’s annual German Village Haus und Garten Tour.

On Saturday, seven hundred gather for a deconstructed gala that begins with a sneak-peek preview of the same homes featured the next day on Tour followed by a cocktail reception and the option to proceed to a dinner at a private home or restaurant.

On Sunday, four thousand ticket-holders have always wondered what lies behind the door to that charming brick cottage, and what’s just on the other side of that garden gate. Haus und Garten Tour satisfies that curiosity when we welcome guests to this vibrant and unique historic neighborhood. Your ticket gives you access to a stunning collection of homes and gardens that have been selected to showcase both German Village’s ongoing historic preservation efforts and the innovative and inspirational interior design and landscaping efforts of its residents.
