About Germantown

Named for the influx of German immigrants to the area in the mid-1800s, today Germantown is a hot Nashville neighborhood with historic charm and some of the city’s hippest restaurants. On the National Register of Historic Places since 1979, what’s considered Nashville’s first neighborhood is known for its lush streets (it’s been deemed as a “city arboretum” by the Nashville Tree Foundation because of its more than 100 species of trees) and Victorian architecture, and it’s just north of Nashville’s capitol building. Famous spots here include the Nashville Farmers Market, Bicentennial Capitol Mall, and Morgan Park.

Getting Around Germantown

Around Germantown

Germantown offers a mix of older single-family homes and newly built condos and townhomes. Bars, restaurants, and stores are sprinkled throughout the quiet neighborhood, offering a relaxed residential vibe mixed with a mild nightlife — all with a view of Nashville’s skyline.

Arguably one of Nashville’s best restaurant neighborhoods, Germantown offers everything from pizza and beer to elevated farm-to-table cuisine lauded by national publications. Many restaurants, such as the hallmark City House, set up shop within homes built in the early 1900s with soaring ceilings and other 20th century details. Critics have heaped praise on Rolf and Daughters, located inside a rustic century-old mill, for its exquisite pastas.

Germantown attracts a hip crowd of foodies and urban explorers patronizing the area’s hot restaurants, bars, shops, cafes, and farmers market. You’ll see young professionals filling up the neighborhood’s newer residential buildings. People out walking dogs and neighbors saying hi to each other are other common sights in this friendly, highly walkable community.

Snagging a reservation at one of the neighborhood’s hot restaurants is a popular way to spend a Friday night in Germantown. During baseball season, head to First Tennessee Park for a Nashville Sounds game, where there are plenty of family activities and fun for adults, too (there’s a bar). In addition to regular fun Friday outings, Germantown is host to Oktoberfest — Nashville’s oldest festival spanning 10 blocks over four days — each fall.

Start at one of Germantown’s many hip cafes where coffee is elevated to an artform, and be sure to have a crepe or donut with your pour-over. Head over to The Square, a mixed-use development with condos, and browse the cluster of stylish boutiques there and in the rest of the neighborhood — there’s even ones catering to hip babies. You could spend the rest of the afternoon at the Nashville Farmers Market shopping, eating at one of the many food stands, or watching live music. Pick up a picnic there and take it to Bicentennial Capitol Mall right outside.
