Experience Missouri’s Wine Country in a unique and memorable way with Wine Country Wagon Rides—Hermann’s own horse-drawn carriage rides.

Founded in 2015 by Tom and Cindy Seibert, who were inspired by their love of both horses and Missouri’s Wine Country. Wine Country Wagon Rides ensure guests have a wonderful and magical experience, whether it be for a wedding, a history lesson, an anniversary, or a family holiday tradition, each ride will be unforgettable.

Two tour options to explore beautiful Hermann

Learn about Hermann’s rich history while feeling like you’ve gone back in time with a Wine Country Wagon Rides tour. Hermann visitors can choose from two carriage ride options—the Mansions of Hermann Carriage Tour or a tour of Hermann’s historic downtown. 

The 45-minute tour showcasing Hermann’s historic mansions starts in the heart of the downtown district, where the community’s oldest homes can be found. Visitors will ride across town to see the gorgeous, stately homes of prominent Hermann figures.

If you’re interested in learning the story of the quaint German settlement, the downtown tour will take you through the historic Hermann streets, where you can vividly picture the life of early settlers from the area’s well-preserved history and architecture. 

If you’d rather just sit back and relax during the tour, you can even request a “silent” tour, allowing you to take in the sights while listening to the soothing clip-clop of horses’ hooves. 

Sleigh bells ring..

There’s nothing quite as magical as a carriage ride during the holidays—just picturing riding through streets lined with Christmas lights as sleigh bells ring stirs up nostalgic images of Christmastime. Bring a hot beverage with you for your ride and sing your favorite Christmas carol. They’ll provide the blankets to make sure your experience is cozy and enjoyable!

If you want to ensure you’ll get a memorable holiday experience, they recommend you make a reservation, but walk-up rides are always welcome. Departing every thirty minutes from the Amtrak station, magical holiday carriage rides are available each Saturday in December leading up to Christmas.

Looking for the perfect element to your fairytale wedding?

Not only do Wine Country Wagon Rides offer Hermann visitors amazing tours through the historical town, they’re also available to help couples create their perfect wedding day. Make an unforgettable departure after you say “I do” in one of Hermann’s many beautiful wedding venues by stepping into a horse-drawn carriage.

Couples even have options for different wagon sizes, including one that holds up to 12 people! If you’d love to parade through Hermann’s streets on your wedding day—or even during your bachelorette party—Wine Country Wagon Rides can make your dreams come true!
