Sarah Warmka from the New Ulm Chamber was recently asked to share some ideas of ways to enjoy New Ulm during COVID-19 restrictions on KEYC – TV! Watch the video here: Exploring New Ulm While Social Distancing.
Besides typical activities that you might think of (golfing, biking, fishing, etc), New Ulm has a lot of neat options that are unique to New Ulm, like a digital Community-Wide Scavenger Hunt, the Glockenspiel, a self-guided Downtown Walking Tour, gardens at Schell’s, Brewery, and Way of the Cross.

This newspiece came out on the same day that our biggest festival of the summer, Bavarian Blast, announced they are postponing until 2021. Festivals, by nature, mean large gatherings of people, and that is not feasible given the current environment. However, New Ulm is a GREAT place for leisure travel for families, friends, and small groups! Did you have a big trip planned this summer, and now you’d rather stay closer to home? Consider exploring New Ulm! We’ve been described as ‘Germany Without A Passport!’
There’s tons that people can do here safely (great history, awesome boutiques, unique dining option, the best brewery in MN, etc, etc). We are also safer than some destinations (think less crowded, lots of open space, a nationally-recognized hospital and health care system, ranked in the top 2% of safest cities in MN, etc). Plus, our small businesses rely on tourism, so you’d REALLY be helping us all out if you came here…
