After you tour around the Speed, take your own little tour of this fascinating Louisville neighborhood.
Dropping by Schnitzelburg
Schnitzelburg is an historic Louisville neighborhood just three miles outside of downtown and just blocks outside of Old Louisville. This neighborhood is named for a German food dish, because Germans were among the first settlers to this area in the mid-1800s. The German culture is still strong here, and Schnitzelburg is where you want to be to taste authentic German cuisine and find true German culture. This neighborhood is world-famous for hosting the yearly Dainty Championship, a popular German street game that has been attended by some of Louisville's most famous residents and politicians.
This community is surrounded by parks and schools. DuPont Manual Stadium is at the center of the neighborhood. Schnitzelburg is surrounded by restaurants and shopping as well, and it's just minutes away from some of the city's best attractions. But mainly, what you'll find here is charming homes that date to the early 1900s.The adorable homes in Schnitzelburg are primarily built with siding with colorful details and curbside appeal.
It won’t take long for Schnitzelburg to charm you this September. Drop on by the neighborhood, and your jaw will drop when you see everything in this community.
