The old world feel of The Village makes it a welcome retreat. Stroll the grounds, enjoy the atmosphere and pick up a distinct keepsake or treasure at one of the stores. Shopping in Gatlinburg is always fun, especially with all the one-of-a-kind shops, and The Village is no exception. I always pick up a bottle of sauce from the Pepper Palace and if you have the chance to grab a bit to eat I recommend The Hofbrauhaus. An experience at The Hofbrauhaus transports you to Germany. Order a beer and a brat or the super famous reuben. Piled high with corn beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese and a special sauce on pumpernickel bread, it’s a signature menu item.
