The main street through this neighborhood has quaint buildings and a lovely clock tower. There was also a nice pet shop. It’s probably a pleasant night spot with some restaurants open during the day.

In from out of town for a wedding, this area was perfect for us and our guests to eat, drink and visit! Especially pretty at night. Great food, drink and atmosphere!

MainStrasse offered a lot of dining and pub restaurants. All within walking distance of each other. Enjoyed window shopping!

Fun little village in Covington. Great restaurants and fun shops and boutiques to browse. We spent about three hours on a Saturday afternoon. The Bourbon Bar is a must! And Piper's Chili dog is to die for! (yes! a chili dog). You won't be disappointed.

Was disappointing. Nice neighborhood walking area but not many places to go. We were there on a Sunday, some places were closed, but limited number of choices. It's advertised as a German area so we thought there would be bars and restaurants featuring German foods...More

We walked a few blocks from our hotel to the Village. Such a beautiful area with restored buildings from late 1800's. Lots of restaurants with outdoor seating, bars, shops, etc. We weren't there long, but did enjoy it very much.

Enjoyed going through the neighborhood seeing the past blend with the present. Nice variety of restaurants with patio/sidewalk dining.

Always visit here for a night when we come to town for Bengal games across the river. Must stop for Kentucky bourbon and some good eats. Always stop at Fridas, Smoke Justice, and Malones. So fun.

Especially during the Oktoberfest. Outside beer and food galore. Loads of fun. A repeat event for us.

This is a cure area to walk around and browse in the shops. There are also lots of cute little sidewalk cafe's for lunch or a snack.
