Travel to the wonderful village of Hermann, Mo., to enjoy some good, old German gemutlichkeit ("pleasant atmosphere"). First up, sample and shop for hickory smoked ham, bacon, turkey and more than 30 varieties of award-winning sausages and brats at the nationally famous Swiss Meat and Sausage Company in Swiss, Mo.
Enjoy a traditional German schnitzel dinner in the Vintage Restaurant at Stone Hill Winery, followed by a tour of their unparalleled wine cellars and a formal tasting of the winery's award-winning wines. Don’t worry, there will be time for shopping here, too—head downtown to visit and shop the festive Hermann Kristkindlmarkt, as well as the quaint little shops for holiday gifts.
