The German-American architectural heritage is more clearly and strongly reflected in the Over-the-Rhine district than in any place in the city. Even its name connotes its origin. The Miami-Erie Canal, now covered by Central Parkway, was dubbed the "Rhine" in the nineteenth century, as when one crossed over it, one entered the German district. A walking tour through the district and its surroundings reveal a treasure trove of German architectural heritage. This publication supplements the tours that Don Henrich Tolzmann regularly leads through this area of Cincinnati.
