Fun Outdoor Activities near Hermann Hill
Hermann Hill 3 Mile Walk
The 3 Mile Walk has become a tradition for many of our guests staying at Hermann Hill. It starts and stops at the Inn and includes a detailed map that provides a lot of historic information as you go 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 MO River Bridge and let us shuttle you and your bikes over to the Katy Trail. Have a leisurely ride back, stopping for lunch at the Trailside Bar & Grill 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. If you want to enhance your experience, check out our Tour of Hermann Hill Package, to really ramp up your ride!
