There is not any parking for the attractions downtown and if you do find a place to park, everything closes at midnight.

A charming city square with tree lined streets, cafe's, unique shops, all with a historical relaxing feel. Not to be missed.

loved the way the storefronts are still very classic and inviting. The merchandise very extraordinary. The people very outgoing and friendly. Reminded us of the Town Square in our hometown in East Texas.

Lots of nice antique shops and places to eat. Prices are not bad for a tourist either! Easy walking around. Parking can be a challenge so some early.

We spent time driving around the historic district of New Braunfels. It was good to see the restoration of the courthouse, square and other buildings. Parking was easy to find, and there were shops and food places aplenty. We browsed for antiques, clothing, and accessories. Depends on how much you want to shop and eat as to how long you... More

Nice downtown area with plenty of free parking. Phoenix Saloon had a good atmosphere and (free) live music even during the week. We were fortunate enough to catch "BRIAN POUNDS" (formerly on "The Voice"). He was good and since it was an intimate crowd, he personalized it with the back-stories about the songs he was singing. The "Pour Haus" was... More

Our downtown circle (roundabout), is simply beautiful. The gazebo and the newly restored courthouse really do amp up the charm of our beautiful city. When the city turned on the Christmas lights this year is was raining and it was cold, but a few brave souls (us and 3 grandchildren) stayed to enjoy the festivities. Every night driving through downtown... More

Clean, pretty, peaceful. Don't forget to stop by the oldest bakery in Texas (founded in the 1800s) which is right off the square on S Seguin Avenue: Naegelin's Bakery. They have tables where you could sit, enjoy coffee and one of their pastries while gazing on the square. Very easy to park your car and just walk around.

The Plaza in the center of New Braunfels is so very quaint and wonderful. The ancient gazebo and the fountain are just marvelous. One is reminded of New England. It is so very pleasant to find this treasure still in existence and so well maintained.
