Hermann the German

A copper 32-foot statue of a German folk hero.

Reviewed By minneapol - Grey Eagle, Minnesota

We have visited Hermann many times and enjoy it each time. It cost 2.75 to go to the top. But it is well worth the cost. The view on a sunny day is spectacular. Grandpa went with the kids but chicken Grandma took pictures. This is not a thing for a person with even the slightest bit of a fear of heights. There is a super nice new kids park adjoining the Hermann Monument.. The kids loved the whole experience.

Glockenspiel

This 45-foot, free-standing, musical clock is one of a rare breed.

Reviewed By Kato M - Sisseton, South Dakota

We visited the town clock after reading about it in the New Ulm Tourist guide... We were fortunate to arrive at the square just before noon, so our wait was very short. The chimes ring for a
l o n g time, and are very loud. But, it is a delight!

Flandrau State Park

Reviewed By Steve0315 - Shakopee, MN

We visited on Friday, May 12, 2017 in the morning.

There were only two other cars in the park, so we had the place to ourselves. The roads, open spaces and trails are very well maintained. We were a few weeks early for the swimming pool (it opens this year on June 2). The pool appears to have full access by wheelchair on a ramp that enters the pool.

Lots of parking available.

Brown County Historical Society

Museum dedicated to telling the stories of the Minnesota people.

Reviewed By Bruce H - Waukesha, Wisconsin

My wife is doing family genealogical research and Darla, at the Brown County Historical Society, was very helpful. She found records pertaining to our ancestors and provided additional background for us. The Society has interesting historical exhibits in their museum, and the staff are friendly.

Morgan Creek Vineyards

Reviewed By kmbrown021393 - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

My husband and I stopped by this past weekend while we were visiting New Ulm. It is about a 20 minute drive to get out there. The setting is beautiful. We did some wine tasting and my husband found several he really enjoyed...I am a little pickier and was not super excited about the ones I tried. The pizza looked amazing, but, we had recently eaten. They do not do tours anymore. The staff was super friendly and atmosphere was relaxing and enjoyable. We were glad we stopped.

Harkin Store

Savor the smells and sights of an 1870s general store as you sample the wares or try a game of checkers. When the railroad bypassed the small town of West Newton, the Harkin Store was forced to close with much of the unsold inventory still on the shelves, where it remains today. The site reopens for the season on May 4, 2018.

Reviewed By Mark H - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin

This Minnesota Historic site is a step back in time on a beautiful county road (think motorcycle or convertible) on a county road following the Minnesota River.

The store has all sorts of interesting artifacts and merchandise form when this was bustling little business district before the riverboats gave way to the railroads which bypassed this slice of paradise.

The interpreters were great. Some the interesting merchandise includes shoes with no right of left versions, clothing of adults that is so much smaller than what a typical adult would wear now, various posters, older ledgers, etc.

It's worth about an hour of your time.

The parking lot is across the road. If you mobility issues, they encourage you to drive up the driveway instead of using the steps.

German Park

Reviewed By Sara J

We had our "pet blessing" church service at German Park this summer, and even though it was a little cool, it was a wonderful service. The landscaping there is beautiful! We fixed lunch in the shelter and our organist and her husband played music. Great place to have a Pet Blessing! The dogs loved it too. If you are ever in New Ulm, you should stop by.

Minnesota Music Hall of Fame

Reviewed By hutchathleticdad - Hutchinson, Minnesota

Wow, what a great find. It's right there on Broadway but it's very easy to drive by and miss. But you have to stop in if you're interested in all things associated with Minnesota music. Who knew the Waconia Knights of Columbus had a drum and bugle corp?

Wanda Gag House

Reviewed By Sally M - Calistoga, California

Built and decorated by her father, also an artist, Wanda's family home has been restored and is operated by docents who have maintained this little jewel and remembered the life and work of one of our greatest translators and illustrators of children's literature. It was Wanda Gag who translated Snow White and made the images that influenced Walt Disney in his movie. She also wrote and illustrated Millions of Cats and The ABC Bunny. This may be the only place in the world where one can purchase a Wanda-illustrated hoodie, cards reproducing her work or a pencil with her cat illustrations. They also have a biography retelling her story: how she kept her seven siblings together during the Depression after the death of both parents and got all of them through school with money she made with her work as an artist.

Starkeller Brewery

Reviewed By Diane C - Estes Park, Colorado

Wow! After my eyes adjusted to the bright white industrial looking building the ambiance of this unique establishment had my laughing quietly inside. We enjoyed a taster flight of sour beers and then each decided on a favorite and enjoyed that as well. Great service.
