New Braunfels is conveniently located on the road from San Antonio to Austin, but this city has far more to offer than just a pitstop. To college students studying in nearby cities, it’s a resort town built for lazing on a tube in the shortest river in the world (Camal River is contained completely within city limits).
To the Germans who first settled here, it was home. In fact, the first German settlement in Texas still retains many of its pioneer roots in names like Gruene Hall, Schlitterbahn Waterpark, and the annual ten-day-long Wurstfest. The city itself was named after Prussian prince and city founder, Carl of Solms-Braunfels. New Braunfels is of course all of this and more. Take your time experiencing this fascinating place with our New Braunfels vacation rentals.
Where’s the best place to surround yourself with local history? The neighborhood of Gruene (pronounced like green) is a historic district full of antique shops, restaurants, and boutique shops along the Guadalupe River. When you’ve had your epicurean and retail fill, there’s nothing better than a nap at your home away from home at Wingate by Wyndham New Braunfels.
Looking for more off-the-beaten-path attractions? Slow down and explore the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture. This place is no Ikea, so you won’t have to put together that dining room set all on your own. Instead, admire the craftsmanship of the professionals, then head back to your digs at Comfort Suites - New Braunfels. Cook up a meal in your own kitchen and rejoice in the fact that you didn’t have to build this dining room table, either.
