  • A lovely grouping of preserved buildings from Hermann's early days. They represent the German heritage of the area, and proudly display German architectural styles, interior decor, and more. The gardens are attractive, and the surrounding neighborhood is pleasant. Make time for the guided tour, and be prepared for lots of historic information!
  • A wonderful place to visit and what friendly people. I wish we had timed ourselves better to take advantage of the guided tour. Such fascinating buildings in this town. My mother was along for the trip and kept commenting how much she enjoyed the stop. I have to agree. Easy to find and a very rich history that is being well preserved and cared for.
  • OUR GUIDE WAS EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE. It was interesting to learn about the history of one of our local areas. I also suggest hiring the Hermann Historical Museum. The 2 sites go hand in hand.
  • Stop in and learn about the rich German heritage of the city of Hermann! There are several buildings visited on the tour that offer a view into the past and how German residents once lived!
  • Really interesting tour! I learned a great deal. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. Picked up a passport for the Missouri State Parks and got our first stamp to celebrate the 100th anniversary.
