Heading To New Ulm Tommorow.


Recommended Posts

I dont know if you like baseball, but if you do, New Ulm has some of the nicest ball fields in the state. I would definitely try to catch a game if I were down there. If not, they have tons of little shops downtown you can go shopping at

The glockenspeil downtown plays something like every hour. A visit to Herman the German at the park on the bluff is a nice stop. Of course the Schells brewery is interesting. Lunch or Dinner at the Kaiserhof for ribs. Nice little bar in Turner Hall has a lot German decor and atmosphere.

The wife and I love exploring new towns and sampling their ethnic cooking. We usually research our trip a week before. Typically the trips don't require too much driving. This trip ended up being exactly 5 hours from Richland Center. Our target was New Ulm, Minnesota.

We picked this town because of the strong German influences in the area. The town has gotten some positive acclaim for it's good German cooking. Barb and I decided to test the food ourselves and report back.

Before we hit the restaurants we went on a tour of the town to look at the sites. We hit a couple churches and local landmarks. The Glockenspiel entertained us for a short time at 3pm. We went to Schell Brewery and had a tour. Excellent brewery and tour.

Barb and I ate lunch and supper. The German food was divine. Lunch was jaeger schnitzel and holstein schnitzel. The portions were healthy and I left stuffed.

Supper was to another restaurant. Barb was not very daring and had the Wurst Platter and I had the Hasenpfeffer. I tried to get Barb to try the rabbit with no luck. Both plates were huge and we couldn't finish either. Double thumbs up on these meals.

Lots of friendly folks and very easy to find. It is directly off of Highway 14.

Barb and I will be gallivanting ever so often to some interesting places and sampling their local cuisine and reporting back.

If you ever in the area again and enjoy sporting clays, there is a fantastic joint by courtland (hwy 14) with great 100 round sporting clay course right along side the minnesota river. Also a pheasant farm if your into that kind of stuff.

Food looks great!

I am in New Ulm about twice a month for one thing or another, only 23 miles. It's funny, a big German town, but they have one of the absolute best authentic Mexican restaurants in Southern MN.

Should have also went to the Hermann statue by MLC college. It is the second tallest copper statue in the country, behind only the Statue of Liberty. Now you know!! smile
