Fantastic tour of 4 of the painted churches in the area. Our guide, Linda, was so knowledgeable about each church, the settlements & the history of each. So glad that we took the tour rather than visiting the churches on our own, which you can do. The churches are all located in rural areas on country roads. Each is a little different with gorgeous interior art work. Beautiful stained glass.

Excellent tour of 4 beautiful churches. Our tour guide Andrew gave detailed historical information on the churches and the area. We started promptly at 11 am, toured two churches and had lunch in the town of Schulenburg at The Garden Company (great food and friendly service). Continue our tour of 2 more churches and ended the day around 3:30pm. Very pleased I took the tour. Would highly recommend it.

In 2014 I cut an article on Painted Churches out of a Texas magazine. It wasn't until last year that I could make the tour but I was not disappointed! We picked up the tour (pre-paid and pre-arranged) at the Sdhulenburg Chamber office. The docent road with us, directing us on farm roads, and unlocking church doors. The stories and history she shared was amazing and interesting. We saw 4 churches, and she referred us to another (St. Paul Lutheran in Serbin.) We have since researched Painted Churches. (There are 16 on the National Register). And visited 2 more. What a fun and inspiring way to explore Texas!

Thank you so much for your nice comments. A few years ago, we (the Schulenburg Chamber) came up with a list of Painted Churches that people have added to over the years. We now know of 31 Painted Churches in Texas, stretching from Beaumont to Fredericksburg.

We went to Schulenburg, Tx to visit the painted churches and had a marvelous time! We called the Schulenburg Chamber of Commerce to schedule a tour and guide . It’s possible to go on your own but the tour guide gives you great history of the church and area as you go and is well worth the tip fee.

We had a fabulous day from 10 am to 3 pm with our tour guide Linda. You can make arrangements through the chamber of commerce. Linda was very knowledgeable and fun! She kept us on a good pace, not rushed, but moving when it was time. She made several lunch recommendations and we chose the buffet. I’m not at all a buffet person but this is excellent and the price cant be beat. There were 6 of us and Linda rode in the van with us. We laughed a lot and learned even more. I recommend her and this tour without hesitation. We paid $10 each and $40 tip plus lunch. Do it and enjoy!
