German Village

German Village is a neighborhood just south of downtown and east of the Brewery district that was settled in the early-to-mid 19th century by mainly German immigrants. There is a lot of interesting Italianate architecture, winding streets with brick sidewalks, historic buildings, and alleys. Schiller Park is located in the center, and has lovely paths that in all make for about 1/2 mile of running.  In all, the neighborhood is 230 acres. Rather than proscribe a specific route, we encourage a leisurely ‘touring’ run of the area. Especially nice, early, before stores open and the sidewalks are crowded. Be cautious about your footing on those brick sidewalks! Can combine with a run downtown. It’s about 1.5 miles from the State Capitol, taking S. 3rd St. You cal also cross I-71 from on a pedestrian bridge, just east of S. 4th St., into German Village.

  • Area is 230 acres. 1.5 miles from downtown.
  • Anywhere in village. From downtown, it's a 1.5 mile straight shot from the state house
  • If running from downtown, you'll need to cross I-71. At S. 3rd St. or the I-71 Pedestrian Bridge.
