About Old World
in Huntington Beach, CA

Old World Village was meticulously crafted by Josef Bischof, a German developer who arrived in the United States in 1952, bearing a vision to share a piece of his homeland with others. Together with his family, he constructed 50 homes above 50 shops, all in the traditional Bavarian style, in Huntington Beach. Illuminating the cobblestone streets are imported lanterns, while the walls boast 70 vivid murals depicting scenes from 18 European countries. The village comprises a church for worship, a hall for gatherings and wedding receptions, a garden gazebo, a restaurant, bakery, deli, and a market. Opened to the public in 1978, Josef’s children, Bernie Bischof and Cyndie Kasko, along with their own children, continue to uphold the family legacy and share these cherished traditions for everyone to relish.

Since 1978, Old World Village, Huntington Beach has been the cornerstone of Orange County's Oktoberfest festivities. Situated between the 405 freeway and Golden West College, Old World delights visitors with authentic German cuisine, live entertainment, and a rich cultural experience that celebrates the best of Germany right in Southern California.
