Willkommen to New Braunfels where remnants of the Texas German past can still be seen and heard. Prince Carl of Solm-Braunfels, Germany, had a vision when he sent the masses to the Hill Country. They established their town in 1845 and have continued to celebrate their roots in their present-day activities and culture. New Braunfels offers tasty treats like real wurst, kraut, and even German tea to entice the appetite, while getting a healthy dose of hospitality from the friendly folks around town, knowledgeable and proud of their heritage. B&B’s abound to spoil locals and visitors alike while serving up a helping of local history and lore.
New Braunfels is the place where beer can be served in real beer steins and culture is celebrated throughout the year at Wurstfest, Oktoberfest, and everyday life.
Summertime heat is beat by joining the droves of friends and families being washed down the Guadalupe River in their inner tubes, holding on to each other and the new memories in the making. For those in need of more than a cozy, wet ride, Schlitterbahn reins with 65 acres of waterslides, water rides, and thrill rides like bogey boarding.
Fall brings polka music, art, and festivals for the family that bring in visitors from all over Texas. The perfect time of year for walking tours of the city center and historical districts, the fall is the time to see settlement-era houses and window shop the countless boutiques before filling up at local bistros.
Come celebrate Texas small town urban life in New Braunfels.
