Front Gate

55th Annual HAUS UND GARTEN TOUR presented by Frontgate: 

Living. History.: German Village
Sunday, June 29 | 9 a.m.-6 p.m.

Every last Sunday of June, German Village opens its doors and garden gates for the German Village Society’s annual Haus und Garten Tour. The 55th edition is set for Sunday, June 29, 2014.  Visitors flood the Village for the day-long celebration of renowned designs, enchanting gardens and award-winning restorations.  Guests meander through the open sites at their own pace, while stopping to shop and dine at our businesses throughout the village.

The theme this year: “Living History: German Village.” This year’s Tour co-chairs, Dan Kline and Marie Logothetis, have rounded up 12 properties – one a Frontgate Feature Garden – and there promises to be dozens of inspirational moments.

The day is an effort to provide our 5,000+ tour guests a glimpse of quality historic preservation and innovative design in the home and gardens on tour. We think of the event as a “tour of inspiration.”

More About Our Biggest Fundraiser of the Year

Name the top five places you tell clients, friends and family about when they ask about Columbus’ charms. You list the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, Ohio Stadium, Franklin Park Conservatory, Short North and of course, German Village. Only one is a dynamic neighborhood where the whole Central Ohio region can live, work, shop, and play. Only one combines old-world architecture with nationally rated shops and restaurants in a pedestrian-friendly streetscape just begging you to explore.

Investing in German Village means you are investing in your own future of enjoying all the charms our neighborhood has preserved for 150 years.

Because we have a critical needs list to fund, and fulfilling those needs will help us keep German Village vibrant and appealing to all who are invested in Central Ohio.

Our critical needs list was created over a one-year period. It started with strategic planning and continued with brainstormed and vetted ideas through community engagement, so we know that the investments we make with your dollars are fully supported by our residents. Of paramount importance, we seek to maintain and grow our reputation as a preservation leader and a unique, destination neighborhood for all of Central Ohio. Finally, we prioritized the list and set budgets for each critical needs item.
