The Colonies have been a treasure on the Iowa prairie for over 150 years; welcoming visitors to an experience that’s as unique as you are.
Located just minutes from I-80, the seven villages of the Amana Colonies offers visitors the opportunity to step back from today’s busy pace, to relish in the comfort of locally crafted foods, furniture, art and more. The Colonies offer a unique history and culture found nowhere else in the world.
We invite you to escape the daily routine and experience our villages, meet our many artists, sample hearty foods, locally crafted beer and wine or simply stroll down our quiet streets. The Amana Colonies have something for everyone…let us handcraft an experience just for you!
