Nestled in the northwest section of Philadelphia, Germantown is a neighborhood steeped in history, well known for its historical attractions. In addition to the neighborhood’s extraordinary historic houses, destinations, and museums – from the first-ever American protest against slavery to a key battle site during the American Revolution – Germantown is also home to a rich arts community and cultural scene.
Many businesses, small shops, and restaurants line the neighborhood’s main streets. Just six miles from Philadelphia City Hall, this neighborhood has a character that is completely its own.
Germantown’s accessibility is a major attraction for businesses, residents, and visitors alike. All of the community is within a ten-minute walk to one of three SEPTA train stations that provide service to Center City Philadelphia and the surrounding region. Additionally, nine bus routes offer increased mobility to more specific locations throughout the region. Visit septa.org to explore travel options to Germantown.
