Beautiful little town

New Braunfels is a beautiful little town on the way from Austin to San Antonio. Lots of little restaurants and shops and delightful to just walk around.

We enjoyed our drive through New Braunfels on our way to Gruene. It was 10 on Sunday morning and not much was open yet except for the churches. Would like to explore more in the future.

After visiting Gruene, just a short distance away is the historic part of New Braunfels. Well worth the visit.

Landa Park in New Braunfels is the most beautiful spot in Texas, with it's lake and views of small islands!! The water is clear and clean, fresh from the source, Comal Springs.

It's a small, historic city with a few good restaurants and hotels, and several shopping malls on the outskirts. It's like stepping back in time. It also has a beautiful courthouse.

We drove about 3 hours in for a short two day trip. If you are looking for a hill country small town to visit for a few days, New Braunfels is a great choice. Lots of tourist shopping, hotels, restaurants, German style bakeries and excellent for walking around.

enjoyed a morning looking at all the shops. Some really interesting shops, pottery, wood working, antiques awesome. The main old building is just stuffed with antiques and things. You could probably spend 2-3 hours looking at all the stuff in this store. We were there as the shops opened, by lunch time the places were just hopping. Great time spend... More

It is a great town of antique shops, cafes and history. If you are like me and hate the traffic in San Antonio stay here for restful nights and quiet town with a lot to do. Equal distance to San Marcos or San Antonio sequin, etc... great place to stay for the bi annual antique shows at round top.

My husband and I love New Braunfels' German heritage and take advantage of it often. Sometimes we drive there from Wimberley for a fabulous and romantic dinner or we just decide to sight see. Drive to enjoy the water in Landa Park or mosey on over to the Gruene historic district. It can be a relaxing day trip in the... More
