German culture permeates the historic community of Manning. Located north of Interstate 80 in western Iowa, Manning’s German heritage impresses visitors. Shop ‘til you drop at The Market Place where you can wander through displays of home décor, including repurposed and refinished furniture. Do it all while sipping a hot cup o’ joe from the in-shop coffee bar. Visitors can’t leave Manning without stopping at the German Hausbarn, an authentic barn brought from Germany and assembled in the Iowa countryside in 1996. Explore the area’s history and learn about country life in the 1600s. The Hausbarn’s gift shop sells German gifts and chocolates.
