Lincoln Square

For years, Lincoln Square has been the center of Chicago's German community. It's a place where the old world survives, celebrating MayFest every spring and German-American Fest every September.

You'll find an authentic German maypole and a mural that depicts images from across Germany. You can enjoy German cuisine at the Chicago Brauhaus Restaurant and find some of the best sausages in town at Meyer Delicatessen.
