2019 Marks the Schnitzelbank's 58th Anniversary. Started in 1961 as a tavern now famous German Restaurant. Since 1961, Larry and Betty Hanselman have been the proprietors of the Schnitzelbank Restaurant, a well-known landmark in the predominantly German community of Jasper, Indiana. The Schnitzelbank Restaurant has gone through several transformations over the years and has evolved into a destination in itself, giving patrons an opportunity to dine in an Olde World ambiance. The spacious bar serves up a full line of imported beers, featuring several beers and schnapps from Germany, as well as a variety of German & Indiana wines.

With the help of their six children, and now a new generation of grandchildren, the Hanselmans businesses now includes the Schnitzelbank Restaurant, Schnitzelbank Catering, the Jasper Hampton Inn, Schnitz Brewery & Pub, and KlubHaus 61.
