Access to the River is a closely guarded secret
Mar 2021
We enjoyed our stay in New Braunfels, but found it very difficult to get near the River to just sightsee. Every street near the river seems to be marked "Permit Parking Only." I am sure there were places to enjoy the sights near downtown, but we didn't see any signage.

A mall with streets masquerading as a parking lot.
Nov 2020
Absolutely skip New Braunfels and go to Gruene.

This town has lost its character with far too many people and cars. It's simply impossible to get around. Shopping is almost completely dominated by commercial big box stores and fast food. After living here for a decade some years ago this will be the last time I visit when it is not Wurstfest. Even Landa park is strange now with the abundance of people. More of a People Zoo than a park.

Gruene has great music and local flavor and food. Also, a pleasant gateway city to visit the hill country and the various towns which are fantastic.

Watch Othello!
Oct 2020
Enjoyed the performance of “Othello” put on by Director Bridget Gates - performed at the Landa Slab Dance Park - and thought this free community experience was very enjoyable especially during COVID were people are hesitant to visit bars and restaurants. Chairs are there and snacks on sale. No alcohol, but you can bring your own drinks and snacks.

Nice town just off Interstate 35
Nov 2019
The city has really grown since we were back in the 70's. It was a sleepy little town with a handful of restaurants, but it is now much larger and more active. The historic area is much more developed and there are a number of the historic buildings that have been repurposed and they look good.

The Courthouse is a very nice Richardson Romanesque that is well done--not as good as Waxahachie, but still a good one!

The Comal River goes through the city and it is pretty--also good for water activities.

Amazing time in New Braunfels just not happy with hotel.
Sep 2020
We had a wonderful time our first trip to the area. Floating the river and sightseeing.
However, stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on I35 and was fraudulently charged for a cracked toilet we did not break. Very disappointing to get home after an enjoyable time to this place to be charged $100.00 for something we did not do. Never contacted by management of it. We stayed three days and never once had a problem with the toilet. Hopefullly, you next guest to your area won't have the same
experience but once home read reviews and we are not the first to be charged extra
by the Holiday Inn Express.

Best Outdoorsy Trip
Sep 2019 • Friends
My mom, nieces, a couple of friends and I went to New Braunfels in September. The weather was just perfect for tubing the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers. There are a few wineries and vineyards in the area to visit (yes, I consider vineyards outdoorsy; drink that wine on the patio!) There are caverns, hiking trails and state parks. Fredericksburg and San Antonio are close by and stop by for a quick trip to Austin on the way home. It is a something for everyone kind of trip. We were ages 21 to 76; we all found something fun to do.

Wurstfest is the best!
Nov 2019 • Couples
We visited New Braunfels and went to their annual Wurstfest German festival. This festival features German music, food, clothing and especially , beer. This festival is held right on the edge of the Comal River in an old industrial area n ow converted into a festival grounds. The same area also hosts the Schlitterbahn water park, and the Comal and Guadalupe rivers host some nice river tubing fun in the summer.

Girl’s Road Trip
Sep 2019 • Friends
We just went on our 2nd Girl’s Road Trip to New Braunfels. Most of us are from north Texas and we had two that joined us who live close to New Braunfels. We stayed at The Resort at Schlitterbaun, ate at several great restaurants, experienced an escape room at Escape Haus, shopped around New Braunfels and visited Gruene. There are so many things to see and do while in the New Braunfels area!! Great and clean city!!
Thanks New Braunfels!! We will return for sure!!
