Amana Colonies

A treasure of the Iowa Prairie for more than 150 years, the seven villages of the Amana Colonies offer visitors the opportunity to step back in time to a slower era, to relish in the comforts of locally crafted foods, furniture, art and more.

Escape from your daily routine and experience the unique history and culture hard to find anywhere else in the country – and maybe even the world. From art galleries and theatre performances, to antique shops and home decor, to wineries and restaurants, the Amana Colonies have something for everybody.

While you’re there, check out the Woolen Mill, grab a bite to eat at the Ox Yoke Inn, and drink some dandelion wine from Ackerman Winery.
