Helen, Georgia, is a unique mountain town inspired by German culture and Bavarian architecture. In the early 1800s, The Georgia Gold Rush attracted thousands of miners to the Helen area. They were followed by timber officials who brought the Northwestern Railroad which still runs today. In the 1960s, a group of business women collaborated with a local artist to spruce up the town. Together, they created the German/Bavarian inspired Helen of today.

As a center for tourism, Helen is a getaway from the typical rural town and a hub of restaurants, bars, hotels, and German themed stores. Visitors can enjoy shopping at the one-of-a-kind Betty’s Country Store as well as attending popular year-round events and annual festivals such as Oktoberfest, Fourth of July Fireworks, Bavarian Nights of Summer and Alpenfest. Naturists can tube down the Chattahoochee River, hike on multiple trails like Raven Cliff Falls and go zip-lining at Aerial Adventure Parks. Helen has countless attractions and events to suit every type of person!
