Explore Minnesota rated New Ulm as one of the top towns to visit this holiday season in an article titled “Holiday Shopping in Minnesota Historic Downtowns.” 

The article explains, “For folks who love the traditions of Christmas—fragrant trees, hand-blown glass ornaments, elegantly carved candleholders, sweetly spiced cookies and Old World carols—head to this small town southwest of the Twin Cities in the Minnesota River Valley, with its Glockenspiel and German flair.” 

New Ulm holiday traditions continue with the Parade of Lights on November 26. Downtown New Ulm will be decorated with holiday trees, lights, and wreaths.
