This is an awesome old bridge. I'm glad the city spent time restoring and making the bridge safe for pedestrians. The view of the Guadalupe is great and the architecture of the bridge itself is great. It's hard to believe that this used to be the only way to get a car across the Guadalupe in New Braunfels a long... More

Uncrowded, with a great view of the river and the old mill. Can be very sunny in mid-day, so recommend visiting at sunset or morning. (If you come in the summer).

This historic landmark is an impressive display of workmanship. Originally constructed and opened as one of the first bridges built over a major waterway in Texas, it is now open to pedestrians and bicyclists. Not only is the bridge design beautiful, the view of the Guadalupe river flowing below as well as the surrounding nature is serene. Great place to... More

We enjoyed some nice views of the river and surrounding area from walking across this old and unique bridge. It is free to visit, but parking is very limited. We went about 5:30 on a Tuesday and had no problem finding a parking spot, but on weekends it might be difficult. We were glad we spent a few minutes walking... More

The location is a little off the beaten path but worth finding. There are several benches on the bridge that overlook the Comal river as it flows over a dam on one side and the flow on the other.The day was warm for the time of the year so there where people fishing swimming and kayaking. A great place to... More

It is beautiful however there is only about 8 parking spaces available therefore its difficult to visit. New Braunfels Texas is notorious for never having any parking available for any of their attractions they brag they are famous for. Forget about tubbing the Comal or Guadalupe river in New Braunfels because you won't find parking.

While I wouldn't normally go out of my way to visit a bridge, I'm glad we visited this one. Even in the middle of the day, we had this historic pedestrian bridge to ourselves for a while. It was nice to hear our footsteps on the wooden bridge floor as we crossed, while listening to the sounds of families sliding... More

The Faust Street Bridge is a truss, pedestrian only bridge, c 1887. We happened on it by accident, and enjoyed the respite. As others stated, it is relaxing and you get that "old" feel from the iron trusses and wood slats. There are benches to sit and rest on, but don't go in the middle of the day as we... More

I stumbled on the bridge while taking a side street. What a treat. The bridge is over the Guadalupe River and is on a bike path.It is right in the city but it feels like you are outside the city while on the bridge. The day I was there I saw a couple of cyclists and a few people out... More
