Hermann, MO: old-world European charm on the river
About an hour’s drive from St. Louis, Hermann is a red-brick wonderland set in a scenic valley and nestled up against the Missouri River. Clock towers, church spires, and 19th century buildings that are home to restaurants, shops, galleries, and museums make for an enviable setting. Add in the impressive list of local breweries, distilleries, and wineries, and you’ve got a quick trip that will create lasting memories.
After choosing the destination, our next step is always finding a well-designed space to stay! First on Meagan’s to-do list was checking into the Garden Cottage of the iconic Schiller House, a local landmark whose design pays homage to the German settlers who arrived in the area in the 1880s. A serene oasis in the heart of the downtown district, the Schiller House brings together minimalist, primitive decor with all the modern amenities for a stylish, relaxed stay – all just steps from the historic downtown area. Added perk: a local beverage of your choosing is waiting for you upon arrival.
