These are a few of our favorite places in our quaint village with a bit of commentary on why we personally recommend. We'll be adding more favorites as soon as we find time! For more information on what our village has to offer, we recommend you peruse the Visit Hermann site too.

Battocletti's Bake Shoppe
Retrohaus LOVES our local family run bakery. We have so many favorites: twist donuts, pecan rolls, apple strudel, and rye bread just to name a few. Just remember though- they're closed on Sundays and Mondays- so stock up when open.
Deutschheim State Historic Site
Deutschheim State Historic Site
Don't miss this! Our great grandparents (Bleile) were one of the original deed holders who settled Hermann in the 1800's. Deutschheim State Historic Site preserves two structures that reflect the 1840s and 1850s when Germans first settled the Missouri River valley that reminded them of home. The site includes the Pommer-Gentner house (1840), one of the oldest surviving buildings in Hermann. It also preserves the Carl Strehly house, (1842). Through guided tours of both historic houses, you can experience the daily life and traditions of German immigrants to Missouri in the mid-19th century.
Stone Hill Winery
Stone Hill Winery
Nancy Kuebler Coba (one of the retrohaus owners) worked at Stone Hill during high school and college as a tour guide so this winery has a special place in our hearts. We're still family with the owners Jim and Betty Held. Established in 1847, and well before there was a Napa Valley wine industry, Stone Hill grew to be the second largest winery in the United States! Stone Hill wines were world renowned, winning gold medals in eight world's fairs. Today you can tour the magnificent underground cellars and enjoy wine on the hillside. This is a special place to enjoy! Don't miss it!

For much of its history, the school was bilingual, with classes taught in both English and German. Today the building has found new life as the Historic Hermann Museum.
