Mainstrasse Village Food Tour in Covington KY
US$ 62.00

Bring your appetite for this 3-hour walking and eating tour in Mainstrasse Village located in Covington, Kentucky, just five minutes from downtown Cincinnati.  Linger in the German village, soaking up the charm of European architecture, a glockenspiel, cobblestone streets and fountains. Indulge in local treats, such as Bavarian pretzels, beer cheese, goetta chili dogs, homemade desserts, a tasting of local craft beer and much more!

What to Expect

Mainstrasse Village is a picturesque restored German Village dating back from the 1830's.  During the summer months, people flock to the sidewalk seating on the town square. It is like dining on a sidewalk cafe in Europe! We stroll under a canopy of trees with park benches to sit and relax.  This is the easiest of our walking tours.  Included on this tour are ample portions, more than enough for lunch.  Plus we sample beer, wine and bourbon! Each tasting is served from a locally-owned and operated restaurant which takes pride in utilizing Kentucky Proud products and supporting nearby farms and businesses. We normally get to meet at least 2 or 3 of the owners and learn what it takes to make it in the restaurant business.

Some of the 6 or 7 tastings you will enjoy include German Bavarian pretzel with homemade beer cheese dip,  a gourmet chili cheese hotdog featuring a Tex-Mex style chili made with from an authentic German goetta recipe, a tasting of one of 65 different flavors of soft serve, a slice of a signature pizza or a portion of a gourmet burger, a Charcuterie board featuring a variety of locally sourced cheeses, jams, almonds, dried fruits and to top off the tour, a homemade seasonal dessert served with a generous cup of Ethiopian coffee or tea.  We promise you won't leave this tour hungry!

Please note: The food venues are not handicap accessible. We can accommodate vegetarians only. Vegetarians must call prior to the tour 513-289-0035.  We cannot accommodate food allergies, gluten-free, lo-carb or vegan diets. A standard liability waiver form must be signed prior to the start of the tour. Restrooms are available at every food venue. The total walking distance is a relaxing 1.25 miles on a flat terrain.
