Take an hour to wander through the shops around the twn square (well actually a round-about). It is what small town America used to be like. Grab a cup of coffee and buy something at a wonderful bakery.

I agree totally with Shadrach2015. We wanted to visit this town on our way to San Antonio. We were disappointed. There is nothing special in New Braunfels in the winter. I think it is more of a summer resort town with tubing on the river etc. We were directed by our CAA Tour Book to the Wingate by Wyndham. It... More

Wanted to visit this town on our way to San Antonino as it is right on Interstate 35. It is a quaint town but not outstanding. Town circle was well decorated for Christmas, but didn't offer much else. There are more interesting towns in this area of Hill Country to spend time visiting.

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. But it's not the german ville they promised. I was able to go to the german festival and it was amazing. That's what I expected to... More

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.
