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

If you have a compulsion to go over interesting bridges than this is worth the trip. Plus a bonus wedding service going on down below.

It took a little effort to find but the results were well worth it. The views of the river were quite relaxing. There were people fishing in the river below having a wonderful time.

A nice walk across and below the bridge. We enjoyed watching people fish and swim. We enjoyed taking pictures. There is a walkway to get closer to the falls.

We took a few minutes to reflect on a time from the past. This was a nice pause in a busy day. There is nothing to do, other than spend a few tranquil minutes. We were treated to the treat of a train passing on the adjacent railroad bridge, that made for a nice photo-op. the people swimming below, can... More

There are not that many of these old bridges around and if you have not taken the kids (young and old) to walk across the bridge this would be an excellent location if you are close to New Braunfels. And it will not cost you a penny and the kids will have a great time looking down at the river... More
