  • What an awesome walk into the past. A visit to Hermann, Missouri would be incomplete without a visit to the State Parks Historical sites. You learn so much and gain an appreciation for those of another era. It's just $5 for the tour which helps maintain these sites. The this tours are given by volunteers.
  • Fascinating guided walking tour of 3 homes/properties. Enjoyed learning about the German founding of the town & the many skills the people brought with them and then passed on to others--wine making, music, instrument making, teaching, gardening, home building styles.
