Founded by German settlers in 1845, New Braunfels is an ideal destination in the heart of Texas Hill Country.
Walk through the historic Gruene neighborhood––only a few minutes away from your New Braunfels hotel room––where you can shop galleries and boutiques, see historic outdoor murals, and dine alongside the Guadalupe River. Or sample German specialties and sweets at Naeglin’s Bakery; the oldest in the state, this bakery has been open for business for over 140 years! Learn about local history at the Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country and the Sophienburg Archives, and don’t miss the New Braunfels Art League, housed in the historic Plumeyer Building. Later, enjoy some music at Gruene Hall, Texas’s oldest dance hall, before you return to your New Braunfels accommodations.
Visitors can splash around and soak up the sun at Schlitterbahn Waterpark, with 65 acres of water-related attractions, located just a few miles away from your hotel in New Braunfels. Play a round of disc golf at Prince Solms Park, or stick with traditional clubs and balls at the Landa Park Golf Course. For some adventure off the beaten path, explore the riverbeds and densely wooded areas of Dry Comal Trail.
