Gasthof Amish Village
We love to pop into the Amish stops to poke around, and we’ve brought many treasures home with us on our visits. Whether it’s an Amish restaurant, general shop, or flea market, there is something really cool about taking a step back in history and slowing the pace of life down for an hour or two.
Also, the baked goods. We really, really love the Mennonite baked goods.
