New Braunfels

New Braunfels, Texas
New Braunfels is a growing Hill Country town with a strong German heritage and a picturesque setting. The Guadalupe River flows through the city and is a hugely popular tubing location during the summer months.

The Comal River also flows briefly (it's a short river) through Landa Park, a great municipal park near the heart of New Braunfels. Landa Park includes a golf course, spring-fed swimming pool, miniature golf and train ride, walking and hiking trails, and even more.

And nearby is Schlitterbahn Waterpark, the original Schlitterbahn and named by the Travel Channel as the best water park in America.

The Gruene Historic District, with its eclectic shops and bed-and-breakfast establishments, is a popular place to stay while in town, or just to spend a day shopping. The Grist Mill Restaurant is housed in the remains of a former Gruene cotton mill.

Also in Gruene is Gruene Hall, one of the most-famous dancehalls anywhere and still home to great live music throughout the year.

Wurstfest, a 3-day festival celebrating the city's German roots, is a popular event every November.

Getting to New Braunfels

New Braunfels is in Central Texas, bisected by Interstate 35 between San Antonio and Austin. New Braunfels is just outside San Antonio, and some Alamo City bedroom communities - Schertz, Cibolo and Garden Ridge, for example - come very close to the New Braunfels city line. There is access via Highway 46 to other area towns, such as Seguin, Canyon Lake and Spring Branch.

There is a municipal airport in New Braunfels, but it is small and for local fliers. For air travel, most visitors fly into and out of the San Antonio airport, although some may choose to go through the Austin airport.
