  • Amazing VRBO Rental!

    "Everything was great! This was our second year staying at La Casita Roja - we try to stay every year when Wurstfest comes to New Braunfels. It's a very cute and charming house which has been updated and has great amenities. It comfortably sleeps 10+ adults. The fully stocked kitchen is a nice size and we make breakfast there every year. The long driveway is a huge place for parking multiple vehicles. The back porch is a great place to hang out with friends and family. The location is ideal. Close enough to walk to everything New Braunfels has to offer. Taylor, the owner/manager is great and always gives his guests the royal treatment. He has also introduced us to the owner at the local brewery a block away which was a nice touch. Will DEFINITELY be back again next year. Highly recommended!"

  • Perfect spot for fun on the river with family - Very clean; great location

    "My husband, 9-year-old son, and I stayed here for 4 nights right before my son went back to school. Location was perfect: close to Landa Park, New Braunfels Train Museum, Gruene, Schlitterbahn (new section is right across the street), Guadalupe River, and Canyon Lake. It sits right on the Comal - great for people watching on weekends and floating after all the crazy college kids go away. You can walk right into the Comal River from the property; my husband and son walked home from Schlitterbahn. Property was very clean and well-maintained. Kitchen was well-stocked with cooking utensils, plates, and all kitchen hardware (I liked the toaster better than mine at home!). We were very happy with this property, had a wonderful time, and would love to stay again. Owner was responsive, friendly, and a joy to deal with, as was the local contact for the property."

  • Spacious retreat venue

    "Our family of 8 adults enjoyed a relaxing and playful getaway from the city at this beautiful home. The spacious kitchen and living room with panoramic views of the Guadalupe River brought us together, but there were also plenty of places and activities for everyone -- awesome rope swing into the river (I watched from my floatie!), ping pong and air hockey tables, a fully equipped kitchen for our foodies (not bare bones, this kitchen has everything), outdoor grill, a family of 3 ducks, hummingbirds, lovely furnishings, and a good location (close to Schlitterbahn and Gruene Hall). Beaulieu provided us with the setting we needed to come together. Great outdoor sitting and hammock spaces too, for chilling. Unforgettable, thank you!"

New Braunfels Travel Tips

A slice of old Germany situated in the center of Texas hill country, New Braunfels is truly a destination like no other in America. Located 40 miles south of Austin between the capital and San Antonio, New Braunfels is easily accessible. Founded by a German prince with a group of farmers and craftsman in 1845, the town has been built around charm and hospitality and boasts an undeniably unique history, making it a perfect vacation destination for families, friends and couples alike.

New Braunfels Attractions

If you're heading to the Lone Star State for your next vacation, then New Braunfels should definitely be on your list of places to visit. Infused with German culture since the day of its founding, the area regularly hosts events and cultural experiences like Wurstfest, a celebration of German culture with an emphasis on food and beer. Needless to say, this event makes a phenomenal destination for food lovers from all over.

Held on the banks of the Comal River, Wurstfest attracts visitors from all over the country, and the delectable Bavarian sausage, treats and beer are the main stars of the show. Spanning the course of 10 days in early November, the festival features fantastic cuisine, traditional Bavarian performances (yes, there will be polka) and carnival rides for the kids. If you're heading to New Braunfels in the autumn, try to plan your trip around the festival so that you and the family won't miss out on the fun. Just remember to look well in advance for lodging, as the town tends to pack out during this event.

Things to Do in New Braunfels

In addition to all of the exciting German events New Braunfels offers, it also boasts a ton of ways to have fun on the open water. With multiple rivers and lakes all within a short drive of the Texan town, fun in the sun is never hard to find for tourists or residents on a hot day. Whether you're looking to raft down river rapids with friends or take in a modern water park, New Braunfels is best seen with a swimsuit and sunscreen.

New Braunfels is the home to an award winning waterpark, the aptly named Schlitterbahn. Get ready for thrills, because with rides like the Master Blaster, Black Knight and Wolfpack, there's going to be plenty of adrenaline to go around. If you'd rather kick back, you can even rent your own cabana, don your shades and work on your tan. The party doesn't stop when the sun goes down either, as the Schlitterbahn hosts movie nights and an arcade - perfect for a family night out.

Nature lovers will feel right at home in the Texas Hill Country, particularly in New Braunfels. Just slightly outside of the city you can find Tube Haus, a river rafting and tubing outfitter that can help you strap on a life jacket, get comfortable on inner tubes and safely coast along the Guadalupe River with ease. Try floating the "Horseshoe Loop" one of the most famous and scenic routes around the area due to the fantastic views offered as you float lazily along its course. Float trips can take between two and five hours, depending on what route you ultimately decide on. Adult beverages are allowed on the river, so long as it isn't being stored in a glass container, so remember to bring along something cold to enjoy while you're afloat.
