Apfelbaum Cottage - What To Do
    Below is a list of some of our favorite things to do in and around Hermann.  If that is not enough, search the web, you will find something to keep you busy.

HERMANN
WineriesHermannhoff Winery and Stone Hill Winery are a short distance from the cottage and five more are a short drive away.  If your up for it you can make day trips and hit eleven more!
Restaurants -  Hermann has a number of casual restaurants as well as fine dining at the Vintage Restaurant at Stone Hill Winery .   We recommend the Rivers Edge Restaurant in Fredericksburg MO for fun casual dining and Cottage Restaurant and Gallery for fresh hand-crafted dishes.
Shops -  Many quaint antique and specialty shops line 1st St., 4th St. and Market St.
Biking  - The Katy Trail is located just across the Missouri River and a new bridge has been built with a bike lane for direct access.  For more serious riders the rolling hills that surround Hermann are favorites.
Museums - Deutschheim State Historic Site and German School Museum are only a few block from the cottage.
Golf - Loutre Shore Country Club is three miles away offering a semi private 9 hole course.

REGION
Fishing
- The Missouri and Gasconade Rivers are favorite fishing spot of locals and visitors alike, as are the many lakes dotting the area.
Canoing, Kayaking - The upper and middle Gasconade are some of the best floating areas in Missouri without the crowd of the Maramec.  But, if you want the party of the Maramec it is only an hour away.
Hiking & Hunting - There are plenty of hunting grounds in the area and state and national forrests surround Hermann.
More Wineries - Within a short drive are eleven wineries.  You can spend a couple days traveling the beautiful countryside sampling Missouri's best wines.
More Shops - Just poke around, you will be amazed at what you will find.
