New Braunfels is probably most well known for its natural beauty, especially the rivers. The Guadalupe River receives most of the well-deserved attention for its cleanliness, clarity and cool waters. The Comal River, also known as the shortest river in the world, flows into the Guadalupe here. The water is birthed from Comal Springs, this area of the Hill Country is blessed to have access to the Edwards Aquifer for water. Flowing through the hills and into valleys, the deep green of the trees and grasses adds to New Braunfels' picturesque scenery.
