Our group of 25 had a spectacular tour of Schulenburg’s painted churches. Our tour guide, Wanda, was truly excellent ... extremely knowledgeable and well-versed on the history of the area and the churches we visited. This is a must see for anyone visiting the area.

While the Shulenburg Chamber of Commerce (CoC) offers guided tours, we decided we needed to be able to move at our own (more leisurely) pace around the area. First, we stopped at the CoC on North Main Street and bought a copy of the "Historic...More

Was nice to be able to spend however much time we wanted. The churches are very much worth the visit. Amazing to remember the time-frame in which they were built. The caretakers have done excellent jobs with them.

I don't think there is a dress code as such, but since the churches are active places of worship, I would err toward longer, knee-length shorts. My sister was wearing longer shorts and it was fine. It can get warm in the... More
