Hermann, Missouri

Hermann Hill is the best place to start your adventures, and a perfect gateway to all of the fun activities in Hermann, MO! We’re here to make sure your vacation in Hermann is both enjoyable and memorable. Whether you’re looking for something active or simply wish to relax, there are several ways to get the most out of your time away at our property and in the surrounding area.

Hermann Hill 3 Mile Walk

The 3-Mile Walk has become a tradition for many of our guests staying at Hermann Hill. It begins and ends at the Inn, 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.

Bike the Katy Trail

Park your car at the south end of the Missouri River Bridge and let us shuttle you and your bikes over to the Katy Trail! (Note: our shuttle service is not available upon demand). Take a leisurely ride back and stop for lunch at The Corner Restaurant in Rhineland. If you’re using either of the bike rental companies in town, we’ll pick you up there and shuttle you to the Katy Trail. Check out our Tour of Hermann Hill Package to really ramp up your ride!


Driving Scavenger Hunts

Our Scavenger Hunts are a fun way to explore the town, and you’ll even be rewarded for your time. Just ask our staff for a map and details, then you can be on your way. If you take selfies to show us that you found the clues, we’ll reward you with a $25 gift certificate to use towards your next stay!
