The 3-Mile Walk has become a tradition for many of our guests staying at Hermann Hill.

It begins and ends at the boutique hotel and includes a detailed map that provides interesting, historic information as you walk through town. The first 300 feet is a gravel path through the woods, and the rest of the walk is on streets and alleys. While some guests complete the walk in one hour, others take more time to include a winery tour, lunch, shopping, and perhaps a stop at one of the fine museums or other historic venues along the way. No matter how long you decide to take during your walk, be sure to come by our gift shop to receive your free “I conquered the Hermann Hill 3-Mile Walk” t-shirt.

During your stay, be sure to visit some of the famous Hermann, MO wineries in the area.

Grape growing and wine making in Hermann and the surrounding countryside has been ongoing since the arrival of the first German settlers in the early 1800s. Hermann has been in the forefront of the Missouri wine industry since 1837, a year after the town was founded. So, it’s no surprise that our guests tell us that visiting Hermann’s award-winning wineries is part of their tradition when staying at Hermann Hill. We think you should try the Norton and Vignoles variety at each of the local wineries to compare different finishes of the same locally grown grapes.
