Hermann Missouri Recognized America's Prettiest Towns: Forbes

America’s Prettiest Towns

Midwesterners have an abundance of picturesque towns to choose from, but a few stand out. Hermann, Missouri hosts a small number of festivals that are popular in the region, from wine-themed events (the town boasts a few great wineries in the area) to a Teutonic-themed Wurstfest, befitting the town’s German origins. “It’s a great place for B&Bs and wineries,” says Kendra Williams, travel editor of Midwest Living. “It has an old-world German feel to the downtown and it lies along the Katy Trail, a really long bike trail that winds its way through Missouri.”

Founded by German immigrants in 1837, Hermann retains that cultural heritage with its annual Teutonic-themed festivals, such as Wurstfest, Maifest (complete with May-pole circling), and Oktoberfest, with all the brats and beers that suggests. Just an hour and a half's drive from St. Louis, and you'll find yourself in a unique blend of Americana and old-world flavor. So strap on some lederhosen and save room for a pretzel or two. Just don't go overboard, because the town also boasts an ideal location along the Katy trail, which provides bicyclists a pristine setting for winding their way through Missouri.
