Beautiful historic homes in Hermann have decked the halls and are ready to welcome visitors! 

Take a step back and think for a moment about your earliest recollections of Christmas. The scent of fresh cut pine lingers on the air, the chimes of a spinning candle carousel pull your focus, the faint melody of “O Come, All Ye Faithful” plays gently in another room, twinkling lights dance on a dense evergreen. Feel the overwhelming joy in your heart as you gaze upward at a brightly shining star on the tree, a Christmas beacon if there ever was one. Quickly now, allow a passing Christmas train to zip by your foot as it continues through mountains of richly-covered bowed packages. There is such magic in a Christmas scene.

Hermann welcomes you to slip off your coat and explore some of the most impressive Christmas home displays this area has to offer. Be amazed by the enormous, lit, and ornamented Christmas trees, with grand ribboned staircases and true boughs of holly hung over arched doorways. Find delightful tiny details hidden in festive villages of ceramic homes and shops with their sparkling snow tops and miniature townspeople. Decorating for the holidays requires an extreme dedication to getting everything just right—the image created is a memory maker for all time. In Hermann, there are stunning homes that astound in their choices of embellishments and adornments. And you can visit them on the 2019 Holiday House Tour!

A rare opportunity indeed…

Learn about the historic architecture of downtown and satisfy your curiosity with a rare glimpse inside beautifully-restored and decorated historic homes.

A trip through these distinguished residences is sure to elicit a desire for creating a holiday space around yourself when you return home. 

Porches wrapped in fir swags, high ceilings ablaze with chandeliered lights, fireplaces guarded by nutcracker legions with grandiose arrangements of poinsettia blooms on every surface—these homeowners have created a Christmas marvel for your viewing pleasure. Hermann holiday houses are elevated with all of the the perfect seasonal touches. The sights, smells and sounds of Christmas in Hermann are all included, come make the yuletide gay with a visit to appreciate this talented craft.
