The town is supposed to be an oasis of a german town in the middle of Texas. It's not. I like the little town. Colourful, romantic and beautyful. Cheerful people and great antique shops.

On the main street, I visited the hardware store to buy a bungee cord to help hold my luggage and souvenirs together for my return flight. I really liked the old-fashioned look of the store, but it had what I wanted, the cashier was friendly and helpful, and I came away with a good impression of New Braunfels.

Everything is within 10-15 min from my house. Hardly any problems (burglaries etc)...Only thing I wish was better was NBISD, but other than that, I love it here

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.

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.
