To know Germantown is to love it. Just three miles southeast of Downtown Louisville, it features some of the oldest shotugn homes in Louisville. It's name comes from the large number of German immigrants who made the area their home in the 1800s. There's been a huge revitalization to many of the houses in the area, as well as the opening of several bars and restaurants, mixed in with the old favorites like Hauck's and Check's Cafe. For a friendly, suburban neighborhood feeling just minutes from downtown, look no further than Germantown.
