Hermann, Missouri doesn’t gain the name – the “Best of the Wurst” – for no reason. Every year, the 4th weekend in March becomes the sausage making capital of the U.S., with gourmet sausage sampling and competitions between amateur and seasoned sausage makers alike.
Book your luxury suite at the Inn at Hermannhof or tuck into a hillside cottage overlooking Hermann so you are amidst the German festivities. Take a stroll through the historic Festhalle, the beautiful Hofgarten and the Mill to be immersed in the German music and dancing as well as numerous displays of antique sausage-and-wine-making equipment. Stop to taste the delicious sausage and learn the fine art of sausage making from award-winning sausage makers.
Travel across town and stop for a museum tour or visit Hermannhof Winery and the Tin Mill Brewery for samples of our award-winning wines and beer. Before you end your weekend, make sure to stop on Sunday at the Hermann Fire Department to enjoy a whole-hog sausage breakfast and top the visit off with a trip to the City Park for the annual Wiener Dog Derby.
