Hermannhof Hofgarten - Hermann's Best Kept Secret

For those of you who visit Hermann Missouri on a regular basis or those of you who have never been to Hermann you will want to spend some time touring one of Hermann's Best Kept Secrets of 2008...Hermannhof Hofgarten. Hermannhof Hofgarten is one of several projects sponsored by the Hermann Farm Charitable Foundation.

The Hofgarten at First and Gutenberg, is an exhibition center designed to accommodate ethnic music and arts, craft demonstrations and other educational programs celebrating the unique spirit and German heritage of historic Hermann.

Two “German-stable” inspired pavilions define the interior courtyard, much like a European public square, and feature brick and cobblestone paving and limestone fountains.

Ceremonial iron gates with brick piers and topped with decorative deer enclose the Hofgarten and enhance the park-like setting. The pavilions feature old-world brick, stone and timber detailing, copper roofs, and hand-crafted wrought iron lighting. The Hofgarten also features an eighteen foot tall half-timbered centerpiece cupola.
Guests of the Hofgarten will also enjoy the view of scenic Frene Creek, historic stone farm houses, hillside vineyards, and all of the natural beauty and charm of Historic Hermann.

You won't want to miss visiting the Hofgarten on your next visit. Located on Hiway 100 East, next to Hermannhof Winery, and across from The Inn at Hermannhof.

Our thanks to the Dierberg's for their relentless and dedicated pursuit to the conservation of Missouri agriculture and the preservation and presentation of the region’s cultural heritage for the benefit of current and future generations.
