"In the Center of Ohio's Amish Country" Berlin by deecat

Berlin Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 90 photos

Berlin, Ohio and Holmes County

If you visit the state of Ohio, I think that it would be a shame if you missed the Amish Country, especially Holmes County and the town of Berlin. Why? Because Berlin is the "heart of the world's largest Amish area"; it's where you can find home style Amish cooking; where you can step back in time, slow down, enjoy the rolling hills of the area, appreciate the Amish horse and buggies (even though they slow traffic to a crawl), stand in awe at the quality of the Amish handcrafted furniture, shop for lovely Amish quilts, or just learn about a different culture.

Here in this beautiful area, you can learn about both the Mennonite and Amish religions at the Mennonite Heritage Center; you will be able to see the beautiful Victorian House Museum in Millersburg; you can experience the unique hardware store called Lehman's in Kidron; you will be able to visit a genuine Amish house and farm at Yoder's between Trail and Walnut Creek; and you'll have an opportunity to buy delicious cheese at Guggisberg Cheese Factory in Millersburg, Ohio

And, that's just a small part of what is available in this incredible part of Ohio called Holmes County.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful rolling countyside, delicious food, friendly people
  • In a nutshell:An amazing busy little town in the heart of Amish Country.

    I didn't know about this Berlin in the USA. Enjoyed visiting it through your page. I'd love to visit an Amish community. I am afraid I wouldn't "control" myself on those shops!

    Such a charming contrast to cosmopolitan German Berlin! I read with fascination your descriptions of the Amish sights and culture :-)

    Certainly enjoyed the information about the school, the museums, the house tour, and the Amish. Great work.

    The Amish country is so delightful Dee! The Amish folks are special people with wonderful misunderstood value. It's nice to see such a lovely page that honors them. Great page!

    Comprehensive pages about mennonites, Amish, quilts, architecture, and history. You and Jill travel so well together.

    Having friends who live in Pennsylvania's Amish country, I'd seen quite a bit, but have never visited the Ohio Amish. Thanks Dee, most interesting. Old teachers never lose their interest in education, do they? leyle
