Schnitzelburg Homes for Sale
Welcome to Schnitzelburg! As one of Louisville’s oldest and most historic neighborhoods, this area located three miles southeast of downtown Louisville offers something truly unique—a real sense of community and culture dating back over 150 years. Well-maintained sidewalks, inviting new restaurants, old staples, and friendly neighbors help define Schnitzelburg, founded in the 1870’s by German immigrants and proudly maintaining that heritage today.
Located inside of Louisville, near Germantown, Schnitzelburg retains its history in its housing, featuring hundreds of shotgun cottages, camelback houses, and bungalows. Recent years have seen many of these homes fantastically renovated and updated as the area’s housing continues to be in demand thanks to a large influx of young professionals seeking the perfect balance of community, convenience, and nightlife.
Residents are known for spending time on their cozy front porches and frequently organizing for events like the Spring and Fall Walk, the annual Blues Festival, and “The World Championship Dainty Contest”-an old country, stickball-like game that takes place every year next to Hauck’s Handy Store, itself a Schnitzelburg fixture dating back 105 years!
Other neighborhood staples include Check’s café, a dark wood paneled diner with black and white photographs alongside glowing neon beer signs, that dates back to 1939. It still proudly serves as the de facto watering hole and eatery for this tightly-knit neighborhood today. New favorites include Monnik Beer Company and Lydia’s House, the former a rising brewery with interesting creations and the latter a place to get delicious noodles and sandwiches at a great price. With places like Eiderdown, The Post, and countless others in nearby Germantown, the entire area has become known as a food-lovers haven that’s also light on the pocketbook.
So come for the charming houses and neighborhood, stay for the schnitzel—just don’t miss out!
