2017 Theme: “150 Years of Schiller Park: Poetry. Party. Place”

Welcome to the 58 th Annual Haus und Garten Tour presented by Vutech | Ruff, HER Realtors

For well over half a century, the final Sunday in June has marked the German Village Society’s annual German Village Haus und Garten Tour. 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. While you are here, be sure not to miss a new shoppiong feature in Schiller Park: Members of the Ohio Chalk Art Guild will be creating works of art, as the Friends of Schiller Park welcome guests to a European-style Flea Market with finds for both home and garden. And visit to some of the premier restaurants and shops in Ohio with the best patios and menus in the city! Click here
