Great for pictures

We stopped by on our way to Gruene. It was a lovely spot to take pics with kids. We were even lucky to see a train pass by on the opposite bridge. The kids loved it.

I've lived here in New Braunfels, Tx for almost 30-yrs now, I've seen alot of things change (come & go) I had some free time today so I went by the old bridge to revisit my childhood. Back when I was a young teenager my brother & I would go to Landa Park to swim in the spring fed pool,... More

The Faust Street Bridge is a great walking, photo and scenic destination. The location is easy to get to! Plus you are close to shopping and the downtown area of New Braunfels as well as the other river spots. Here you get a great view of the Guadalupe River up and down stream. There is all kinds of history in... More

The bridge is very peaceful and romantic. There is lots of history in view as you stand on it. parking is at either end of the bridge. It dates back to the 1800's and as you stand on it you can just imagine a rider on a horse or a wagon crossing it.

Great place to go when the river is at or above flood stage. Good railing in place but keep an eye on the kids if they are climbers.

The bridge itself is very nice and if you are on the Faust street east side there are dirt paths under the bridge where you can walk down to the Guadalupe River and walk on the rocks or actually jump in the river. Biggest headache is parking. On the East Faust street side of the bridge, all street parking requires... More

This bridge dates back to the 1800's and is worth the stop. You can walk across this bridge & the views are beautiful. Small parking area.

This is a very beautiful bridge overlooking a river. I really enjoyed that the bottom was a wooden walkway. There's benches on the bridge and there's access to the river at the edge of the bridge. It would of made a nice picnic stop if we weren't just passing by to the drive-in theater.

It is a peaceful restored walk over bridge high above the Guadalupe River next to where the mill ran for many years. It was once used as the main street into town. Some days you will see young people below walking across the dam and other days couples get married on the bridge. There are always turtles and birds to... More
