When you stay at the Inn at Hermannhof looking north, you will see the Missouri River gently rolling past the foot hills of Hermann. The Missouri meanders through seven states, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and finally Missouri before merging with the Mississippi River in St. Louis along the Illinois border.
Long known as the Muddy Mo or the Big Muddy, the Missouri River’s power takes in soil and silt from the river banks causing the muddy color to the waters. The land surrounding the river is rich with nutrients and offers prime agriculture ground which is evident just outside the hills where you will find cropland and fields of cattle grazing in the shadow of the hills.
From the bridge you can now hit the Katy Trail which boasts 125 miles for your biking and walking pleasure. The crisp cool air is a perfect time to take in the sights of the great outdoors along the river’s edge. Wildlife, nature, the Missouri River, natural beauty, fresh air, sunshine and exercise all rolled into one makes for a great day in Hermann.
Take advantage of our Early Bird Special and come visit us during the 33rd Annual Hermann Wurstfest on March 23rd & 24th. Make a point to stop by the riverfront for a picnic lunch by the water or a stroll down to the river to watch the sunset to the West. The riverside park offers plenty of space, not to mention picnic tables, benches, restroom and a great view of the river. All in all, there is just so much to enjoy in Hermann, many of them being the simple pleasures in life such as Sunsets, Rivers and the Katy Trail.
