    Oh, I’m German and love good authentic German food.  So the Heidelberg sounds like a great place to visit!  I am in Florida, so it’d be a bit of a drive.  Can you tell me how far Helen is from Atlanta?  I have a cousin in Atlanta that I visit.  So it would be great to hit this restaurant on a visit.  It sounds wonderful!

      Hi Leahrae! Helen is about 90 miles from Atlanta and would be about a 90-minute drive. The trip to explore Helen from Atlanta makes a great day trip whenever you have extra time on your visits. Enjoy!

    My mother is German and I lived in Germany for 20 years. It’s like driving down memory lane when I see the names of these restaurants. I’ve actually been to the real Bodensee, which is a beautiful lake in Germany. I see that there is even an Edelweiss Street, incredible! 

    Cimmi’s Caf’e looks lovely but so do all the places really. I think I’d like to try the Troll Tavern, it’s right on the river and it offers vegetarian and vegan options too. 

    Why does the city of Helen have so many German restaurants and even a street (s) with German name(s)? Is there a history?

      Hi Christine, it’s great to get a nod of approval from someone familiar with the German heritage that has inspired the town of Helen, GA. Helen’s German theme began as a business decision in the late 1960s that the town should adopt a Bavarian Alpine theme and rebrand itself as a way to boost tourism.

    Wow thank you for all the options.  I love German beer so that picture with all the bottles was great. Made me want to go there now. I haven’t been to Georgia. But my stomach tends to pull me in certain directions and all these great restaurants has it rumbling. Thank you! L, Sammy
