Want to plan a winter getaway to New Ulm?  There is plenty to keep you busy here!  Here are a few ideas:

Warm Up (indoor fun):

  • Brown County History Museum – hands-on exhibits, don’t miss the national-award-winning US-Dakota War exhibit on the 3rd floor!
  • Schell’s Brewery – tours available on the weekends, but grounds and gift shop open daily! Visit the Museum of Brewing on site too!
  • New Ulm Cathedral – aw-inspiring interior with artwork by nationally-known local artists
