Kohler Village is the home of the Kohler Company, the granddaddy of bathrooms. Make your first stop the Kohler Design Center, where your bathroom dreams will come true. There’s everything from hatbox shaped toilets to waterless urinals to their new C3M toilet with a heated seat (remote control included) and built in nightlight. Downstairs in the Kohler Museum exhibits show how John Kohler came to Wisconsin from Austria in 1854 and established the Kohler Company. In 1912 Kohler hired renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead to create a planned community for his employees to live in. Today that community, Kohler Village, offers a multitude of attractions for visitors: museums, historic buildings, garden tours, lakes, and several highly ranked golf courses. Wander the 1000 acres of Olmstead-designed landscaped areas, nature paths and gardens. The John Michael Kohler Arts Center boasts eleven galleries of American contemporary art. Tour the American Club, a luxury resort built in 1912 as a community home for immigrant Kohler employees. On a tour of the Kohler factory you’ll see how your bathroom fixtures are designed and produced. After all those activities de-stress and relax your body with one of the many spa treatments at Kohler Waters Spa.
