Within the South Central region of the Texas Hill Country, there lies a quaint historic city known as New Braunfels. Established in 1845 by German settlers, this beautifully lush city holds some of the most lush and beautiful parts of Texas in its heart. With an abundance of spring fed rivers, the world’s largest waterpark, and countless tradition based events, this city is filled with life at every turn.
There are still pieces of German heritage spread throughout the city of New Braunfels. Stop by Texas’ oldest bakery, Naegelin’s, which is only a short walk away from Friesenhaus, an authentic German restaurant. Each October and November, the town comes alive when Wurstfest, a large German festival takes place next to the spring fed Comal River. If you are looking at building a custom home in New Braunfels, downtown is definitely the spot to check out.
When you arrive in New Braunfels, your first thought may be that it does not seem to be too different from other cities you have been to, but that could be further from the truth. There are an array of activities to choose from throughout every season of the year. During the spring and summer months, the two rivers that run through New Braunfels, are at their best. You and your family can opt to take a relaxing tube excursion while soaking up the sun, or if you are feeling adventurous, then you can rent a kayak or canoe from one of the local river outfitters.
Once the warmer months begin to ebb, you will see that there are just as many options for entertainment as there are in the summer. With fun filled local events like Wurstfest and Wassailfest, staying active in the winter is not an issue. This is not even taking into account all of the historic districts, performing arts, and other community based activities. Local residents will confirm that there is never a dull moment when you are in New Braunfels.
