Sundays are a special time.
For the Amish, it is a day of rest, worship, and visiting. You might have heard that everything is closed on Sundays in Amish Country. Not True! While some businesses close on Sundays for a whole host of reasons, there are still plenty of things to do. The Amish Experience is open on Sundays from 11:30am-5:00pm. All our tours are available on Sundays EXCEPT the VIP (Visit-in-Person) Tour.
What is different about the Amish Experience on a Sunday?
Unlike Monday through Saturday, the Amish Farmlands Tour (90 minute guided bus tour) is not able to stop at an Amish-owned shop during the tour. We’ll substitute another stop featuring local crafts or foods on Sundays that is not Amish-owned. In addition to the Farmlands Tours, the Theater (“Jacob’s Choice”) and guided House & School tours operate as well.
