Things to do

Tourist attractions near New Braunfels vacation homes

Maybe you "came for the waters," like Rick—you know, in Casablanca? But catch the flavor of the town in the Gruene Historic District—or maybe some tchotchkes to bring back home from the oldest hardware store in Texas. Hear live music at Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas, or study the town's German roots at Sophienberg Museum. Head out of town to the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch, a 400-acre drive-through safari park with zebras, giraffes, and ostriches among 500 exotic species. Similar name, different attractions at Natural Bridge Caverns, an underground walking tour.


Things to do near New Braunfels vacation home rentals

With a New Braunfels vacation rental in the summer, you'll want to escape the heat with some watery pleasures. The 65-acre Schlitterbahn water park has waterslides and coasters, inland surfing, a wave pool and play areas for the little ones. Other watery draws are tubing in the Guadalupe and Comal rivers plus swimming, fishing, and kayaking at Canyon Lake. For an escape from the water, there's an animal park and snake zoo, caverns to explore, natural and historic areas to walk around, and opportunities for golfing.


Local weather for your trip to New Braunfels vacation rentals

We can't sugarcoat it: New Braunfels is hot in the summer—super hot. And cold in the winter. November is comfortably in the 60s for the 10-day Wurstfest, a festival of sausage and German heritage, and December is suitably wintry for Wassailfest, held downtown. But, despite temperatures that often hit the 90s from June to September or even top 110 at times, travelers come in the summer for the cold-spring river waters, and of course for a refreshing visit to Schlitterbahn water park. Spring is a comfortable season if you're looking for wildflowers.

Natural features

Where the hills meet the prairie in New Braunfels

New Braunfels is in Texas Hill Country—a name closely linked to former President Lyndon Johnson. Set a bit northeast of San Antonio, this is mid-Texas—not the South, but not the Southwest either. A New Braunfels vacation rental puts you where hill country meets the rolling prairie as the Balcones Fault wrinkles up the land, creating springs and hidden caverns. Wildflowers abound along the highways in spring—bluebonnets and gayfeather, Indian Blanket and Lantana. Wildlife runs to deer, turtles, and salamanders, but you might also spot armadillos, coyotes, and flocks of Mexican free-tailed bats.
