  • Cozy place with a great view

    "We rented the cabin and invited another couple to join us. The cabin is cozy and clean and well equipped. We loved the view of the Guadalupe River both from the house and outside on the lawn. The kitchen had all that we needed, the barbecue pit worked just great. We were mesmerized by the ducks on the water and even in the cold weather thoroughly enjoyed watching them. Yes...we will go back. Russell is an absolute pleasure to work with, and is very very responsive. Nice privacy for two couples with bedrooms and bathrooms on separate floors."

  • Guy's weekend in TX

    "Our group of 6 friends enjoyed our stay at Forever Gruene for the third year in a row. Our excuse for visiting is to attend the Formula 1 car race in Austin, but we love Gruene and especially enjoy our evenings on the terrace at Forever Gruene and its outdoor fireplace."

  • Another wonderful stay at this beautiful condo!

    "This was our third year in a row to stay at this beautiful condo & I cannot recommend it enough. Kathy goes out of her way to make everything perfect for your stay. The condo is fully stocked with everything you might need for your stay & if you might be missing something, a quick call to Kathy & she'll make sure that you receive it. She's always available without being intrusive. The balcony is one of the most relaxing places on earth & floating on the river is a little piece of heaven. It's centrally located with an easy walk to the downtown shops & restaurants and even to Landa Park. We've already booked next year's stay!"

  • perfect retreat

    "We held our parents' 50th anniversary retreat here over the holidays. We were a party of 14 adults, and the accommodations were excellent for our purposes. Plenty of privacy, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, and the setting is just lovely. The water is right off the backyard and there's a dock and fire pit. We found activities nearby everyday, from hiking in the woods at Landa Park, to movies, to Gruene music and shopping. Highly recommend. Maria was communicative and pleasant to work with."

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.
