With a large German community, you’ll find German influences in everything in Hermann, MO. This is the seat of the Missouri wine country. The city was established in 1842, and since its inception, the city has grown nominally to about 2,500 people. The small-town feel in this city really leads to the beauty of the countryside and the authenticity of the culture. Wine enthusiasts have their pick on wineries to check out and would be wise to do so as they visit the local historical sites. CDC information for travelers. Hours/availability may have changed.


1.Hermann Farm

This museum was once the house owned by George Husmann, the expert in America’s wines. He emigrated from Germany in 1839 and was greatly impacted by the Civil War. He was an outspoken supporter of the Union army, and when the Confederates camped on his land, they destroyed his harvests and wine surplus. Since its building, the house and farm buildings have been restored to their original look, and Shire draft horses still live on the property. Tractor tours are available at this living museum, offering a chance for visitors to get a good look at the 200-acre lot.

Hermann was home to many German settlers. To celebrate this heritage, the Deutscheim State Historic Site looks at the culture and heritage of these people. Three tours of the homes are held daily, though guests can view the area’s buildings on their own. Be sure to check out the Carl Strehly house. Built in 1842, this home was used as a printing press for a period, and still houses the original furnishings from the family. The local gardens plant authentic 19th-century plants to show what the gardens looked like back when the emigrants came. If you plan your visit around the holidays, be sure to check out all the special decorations and activities of the weihnachtsfest (German Christmas celebrations and traditions).

Built in 1878, the Concert Hall and Barrel Tavern has an old saloon on the first floor, while a hall on the second floor has been home to lectures, plays, and musical shows. Today, the concert hall is used by party-goers for events and live bands. Down in the tavern, the owners have moved further from the saloon-style menu to offer more food dishes on top of the alcoholic offerings. Like much of Hermann, German influences can be found in the food options, such as the bratwurst, Rueben, and schnitzel. The appetizers are where the Barrel Tavern really shines, with may delights to go along with your happy hour get together.
