Welcome to THE RITZ-CARLTON, our host hotel for Treffen Gateway to the West

The Ritz-Carlton is tucked within the Arts and Garden District and is minutes away from Forest Park, one of the nation’s greatest urban public parks. The 1300-arce park was the site of the 1904 World’s Fair and is now home to five major cultural institutions: the Saint Louis Art Museum, the Saint Louis Science Center, the Missouri History MuseumThe Muny and the Saint Louis Zoo. There are 30 miles of paths and trails and 190 acres of Nature Reserve.


For those who had attended and enjoyed the Evening in the Town Square block party at the Barnsley, we are currently planning a Treffen Oktoberfest Social roof top party on Friday evening with display vehicles and themed food and beverage, so bring and wear your lederhosen and dirndls for this event.  Please visit the hotel website for more information about the accommodations, dining, and on-site activities.
