Hermann, Missouri offers a taste of 19th-century German life within the Missouri River Valley, offering a wide variety of historic and cultural attractions for visitors. The city’s surrounding Hermann American Viticultural Area, designated in 1893, was one of the first recognized viticultural districts in America and is home today to seven wineries, which bottle approximately one-third of the wine produced in Missouri. A number of public special events are held annually along the 20-mile Hermann Wine Trail, including a Valentine’s Chocolate Wine Trail event and a summer Berries and Barbecue Wine Trail bash. A number of historic sites are preserved within the city, including the Deutschheim State Historic Site, the Historic Hermann Museum, and the Gasconade County Courthouse, the only American courthouse constructed through private funding. Outdoor lovers will enjoy the city’s many biking, hiking, and zipline trails, including the 240-mile Katy Trail State Park, which embarks across the Missouri River from the city’s downtown.
