Named for a tasty German dish called schnitzel, the Louisville neighborhood of Schnitzelburg has an interesting history. From the community’s origin and its first German immigrants, it continues to celebrate the food and drink of Germany.

One of Schnitzelburg’s claims to fame is a game called Dainty. Dainty is a street game using a flat stick as a bat to hit another stick into the air. Then the stick in the air gets hit like a ball to a bat. The annual World Dainty Championship is held in Schnitzelburg.

Another famous link to Schnitzelburg is Check’s Cafe. It’s one of the most popular restaurants in Louisville. Known for burgers and beer, Check’s also stays true to the heritage of the Schnitzelburg/Germantown area by serving traditional German foods and beers. Check’s is also known for bargain prices for good food.

Yet another famous point of reference is the historic Manual Stadium and a three-level Gothic-style building that became duPont Manual High School. Dating back to 1892, Kentucky’s oldest football rivalry was between Manual and Male High School. Over time, circumstances, including poor academic performance and discipline problems, lead to the creation of a magnet school in 1984.

Since that time duPont Manual High School has been nationally recognized for academic success. Redbook and Newsweek are two of the magazines featuring Manual as one of America’s top schools.

Located just three miles from downtown, Schnitzelburg is situated between Goss Avenue on the east and Shelby Street to the west. Clarks Lane is the south marker for the neighborhood and the railroad tracks provide the north border.
