City of Helen 100 years

Welcome to HelenMayor's and Commissioners Welcome

Welcome to the City of Helen, better known as "Georgia's Alpine Village," and what we like to think of as Bavaria in the Northeast Georgia Mountains.

If you are a regular visitor, you already know about our variety of events and places to visit as well as all the natural resources we enjoy. We are adjacent to The Chattahoochee National Forest, and there are many areas within driving distance to explore such as Unicoi State Park, Sautee-Nacoochee and the Richard Russell Highway. For a first time visitor give yourself enough time to simply enjoy all the beauty of our town and where it is located.

We are proud of our town government and employees, our local businesses, restaurants, shops and golf course. We are committed to the quality of your visit, and to your full enjoyment of what our Town and area has to offer. We hope you share our deep appreciation of our downtown beauty, the Chattahoochee River. Please take advantage of all we have to offer while at the same time respecting our natural resources.

Our website is designed to provide information to our residents, businesses and our visitors. We hope you'll explore it and let us know what you think. Please share your thoughts with us and let us know if there is more information you'd like us to include.

Please visit our Welcome Center on Brucken Strasse behind the Post Office in Helen or stop by our beautiful City Hall. We'd love to meet you.

On behalf of our entire City Commission, our employees, businesses and residents of Helen, we're glad you have chosen our community for your vacation. Have a wonderful time.
