Holiday in New Braunfels, TX


Be Transported to Another Era in Historic New Braunfels

Situated a few miles northeast of San Antonio, New Braunfels is one of Texas' oldest towns, having been founded by German immigrants in the 1840s. It's grown a bit since then, with around 60,000 residents, but areas like Gruene Historic District retain a timeless historic feel, and there are endless parks and rivers to explore in the region, too.

Understanding New Braunfels' Geography

New Braunfels is around 30 miles away from central San Antonio, and has a totally distinct identity. Getting around is probably best done by rental car, although bike hire is popular and shuttle buses operate, too – but public transportation is thin on the ground.

How to Reach New Braunfels

The best route to New Braunfels is to fly into San Antonio or Austin and take I-35, which runs straight to the city. Those coming from Houston or the West can take I-10.

Activities in new Braunfels

A Magical Place for History Lovers

New Braunfels has a beautifully preserved old town feel, especially in Gruene, where you can catch country music performances at Gruene Hall, grab authentic German wurst, and visit the Sophienberg Historic Museum.

A Wonderful Family Destination

New Braunfels is also a major destination for visitors with kids, mainly thanks to the presence of Schlitterbahn – one of Texas' premier amusement parks. But tubing on the Comal River and boating on the Guadelupe are also great family activities.

Perfect for Nature Fans

Descend into the eerie Natural Bridge Caverns, see the hundreds of species at the nearby Wildlife Ranch, and just generally enjoy the fresh air and scenery of Texas' Hill Country.

It may seem thriving these days, but Gruene once went from being a prosperous cotton producing town of hundreds to a virtual ghost town due to the boll weevil blight. Since the 70s, it has been restored to its 19th century glory.

Top 5 Things to Do in New Braunfels

1. Catch a Show at Gruene Hall

Since 1878, Gruene Hall has been a legendary music venue, with its 6,000 square feet dance hall and a galaxy of stars who have performed there, from Willie Nelson to Townes Van Zandt.

2. Take the Kids to Schlitterbahn

When the Texas sun is at its fiercest, there's nowhere like Schlitterbahn, with its six-story water chutes, lazy rivers, tubing courses, wave pools, bars, and artificial sun-bathing beach.

3. Descend into Natural Bridge Caverns

Just 25 miles away from New Braunfels, Natural Bridge is a subterranean wonderland, filled with exotic rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites. Guided tours are a fascinating experience, and “adventure” tours are also available.

4. Explore a Vibrant Craft Brewing Scene

Perhaps due to its German roots, New Braunfels has one of Texas' liveliest craft ale communities, with brewery pubs like the Faust Hotel and acclaimed breweries like Guadelupe based in town.

5. Visit San Antonio and the Alamo

When you stay in New Braunfels, you'll only be a few miles away from San Antonio, where you can see the site of the Alamo, where Davy Crockett fell or watch the Spurs battle it out in the NBA.

Useful Information

Time Your Trip for the Activities You Adore

If you want to spend most of your time at Schlitterbahn, summer is the perfect time to go, but it's not necessarily the best time for history fans to go. Spring or fall are mild (and much less humid) and also less busy, making them a good time to check out the antiques stores in Gruene or visit the caverns. However, spring can be wetter than the fall, so if you intend to boat or hike in the Guadelupe valley, September or October could be the best time to book.

Join the Party During New Braunfels' Biggest Events

As you might expect from a German city, New Braunfels has some incredible food and drink events, most famously its WurstFest in November, which brings together artisan sausage makers and craft brewers. The Gruene Music and Wine Fest in October is a bit more sedate, while Fall into Art in late October is a feast for art fans.
