Amana Arts Guild will host the Christmas Haus Tour this year.  It is an event filled with lovely traditions and whimsical surprises.  During this festive season the Amana Arts Guild welcomes visitors to its 11th annual Christmas Tour of homes.  Progress has not eradicated the town’s treasured traditions and quaint customs.  Amana’s cedar sided, limestone and time bleached brick buildings have weathered for well over a century.  Tour private homes decorated for the holidays and take part in the ambience of Christmas in the Amana Colonies.  Visit with homeowners and get to know the colonies in a whole new way while you visit homes with stories as remarkable and varied as the colonies themselves.  The homes on the tour this year are:
