“Sweet hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Nice little area in Covington just a mile or so south of downtown Cincinnati - several interesting shops and restaurants and appealing streetscape. The nearby park has a big clock tower that on the hour has a revolving scene that pops out of the clock showing the story of the Pied Piper. My kids loved that when they were younger

“Little Bavaria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Coming from the original Bavaria, Germany I quickly fell in love with the authentic charm of Mainstrasse Village. From the festivals to the Gasthause and beer, even the architecture is present in some of the structures. I live here now and enjoy it thoroughly. Generally being a younger crowd (21-40ish), Mainstrasse has lots to offer.

“Love the MainStrasse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Can't go wrong with a walk through the village. Great chops, cute eateries, attractive bars, tree lined cobble streets and a working glockenspiel. Worth a stroll and a few stops along the way.
