Hahndorf is the earliest German settlement in Australia. It's a popular destination for locals on the weekend and also for interstate and international tourists. Hahndorf is the perfect place to experience the best of Germany from gifts, souvenirs, time pieces, beer steins and of course traditional German food.
There is something for everyone at every time of year and The German Village Shop is in the heart of the action located in the centre of the mainstream opposite the Hahndorf Inn Hotel.
Hahndorf has something different to offer in every season. Summer brings sunshine, warm weather and the perfect conditions to taste a few traditional German beers. With Christmas on the horizon see Hahndorf puts on a display with Christmas Markets and late night shopping. Hahndorf's Main Street in autumn is insta worthy with the tree's leaves turning a fiery red, making you feel like your walking the streets of a country town in Europe. Winter might be wet and cold but the perfect time to warm up inside with a hot chocolate and some delicious, traditionally prepared German food. Spring brings warmer days and some welcoming sunshine to the streets of Hahndorf where you can sit out side and enjoy some locally sourced wine and food platters.
