What an amazing place! Small town ambiance yet modern. Loves to party, particularly celebrating it's German heritage. Wurstfest is a must! The top waterpark, Schlitterbahn, is here. Too much to do and see to list. C'mon down!

The city Parks/Rec hold this every year, they select a different group to highlight. This year was city employee's. They have 6 and try to have descendents play the part of the person. It was very interesting and well done. You park at a near by park, and take a hayride over to cemetery. Not for children for they would... More

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

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
