Over-the-Rhine

Walking to work across bridges over the Miami and Erie Canal, which separated the area from downtown Cincinnati, mid-19th century German immigrants nicknamed the Canal, "the Rhine" in reference to the river Rhine in Germany. Because of its size, today Over-the-Rhine has been segmented into three distinct districts: The Gateway Quarter, The Brewery District and Liberty Street, all flourishing with restaurants and independent retailers. At the center of Over-the-Rhine, the 8-acre Washington Park is a popular venue for music festivals, farmer’s markets and more.
