Founded in the 1800s by German vintners, Hermann (population: 2,600) has retained its small-town character even though many come to this Missouri River town each year to explore the area’s famous wine trail.

Stone Hill Winery

Founded in 1847, this winery is one of the oldest wineries in the area.

Eat and Drink

Espresso Laine

The cafe offers board games for patrons to play while drinking their coffee, tea or specialty drinks.

Vintage Restaurant at Stone Hill Winery 

It's worth the wait for a booth tucked into a carriage house and former horse stalls at this restaurant. The menu features German favorites.

Stay

Alpenhorn Gasthaus 

The owner is a gourmet cook, so plan on having dinner at the lodging —served Fridays and Saturdays (reservations required).

The Cottage Tree Houses 

For a less traditional stay, climb up into the forest. All of the tree houses have full indoor plumbing, heat and air. The Moonlight Tree House is wheelchair-accessible.

Hermann Hill Vineyard and Inn

Visitors choose between an attractive B&B and modern cottages overlooking the Missouri River.
