Hermann Missouri - Deutscheim State Park Cover

Deutschheim State Historic Site

Visit a significant part of German-American history – and early Missouri settlement – at Deutschheim State Historic Site. Stroll through the restored 1840s and 1850s buildings and explore how German-Americans settled the Hermann area and developed the basis for a Missouri wine industry. 

Grapevines planted in the 1850s can still be seen on the property as can a number of historic artifacts.  The architecture covers a range of contemporary styles brought from Germany and interpreted in the United States, and the houses have furnishings reflective of mid-century German families in Missouri. The site includes grapes planted in one of the original vineyards and the site of a printing press. The buildings include exhibits of tools and artifacts of the period, giving a picture of daily life. Tours of the grounds are offered for the public.

We offer guided tours seven days a week April-October at 10:00, 12:30 and 2:30. Adults $4.00 and children 6-12 $2.50, five and under free. We also offer group rates. November to March we are open Thursday-Sunday. Our visitor center is open 10:00-4:00 and is free to visit. It has displays on the German immigration and features a wonderful gift shop with many unique items including springerle cookie molds and related supplies, pop-up cards (guckkastchen) imported from Germany and many books on early Missouri history and German immigration.
