New Braunfels Vacations
For a taste of Germany in the Texas heartland, visit New Braunfels. The town, which was founded by German noblemen in the mid-1840s, sits approximately 32 miles northeast of San Antonio. However, there's more than enough to do in New Braunfels, so book one of Travelocity's New Braunfels vacation packages and take a Texas trip that's out of the ordinary.
Surprisingly, you should pack your swimsuit because New Braunfels vacations can be wet ones! The town is home to several water parks, all located on or near the Comal River. Dry yourself off for a visit to the New Braunfels Railroad Museum, which has both model trains and restored full-size train cars on exhibit. It's located next to the tracks for the North/South Union Pacific rail line. Immerse yourself in New Braunfels' history with a visit to the New Braunfels Conservation Society's Conservation Plaza, a collection of preserved homes, barns, and stores.
Car rentals in New Braunfels are a good idea to get you to historic Gruene, on the outskirts of New Braunfels, while you're there. Gruene Hall, which was built in 1878 and is the longest continuously used dance hall in all of Texas, is located just under the water tower in Gruene.
Recurring Festivals and Events
By far, the largest annual event in New Braunfels is Wurstfest, which takes place over a 10-day period in early November.

The Gruene Historic District also hosts monthly Market Days—except in January—where unique Texas foods and handcrafted items are sold. There is also live entertainment, wine tasting, and more.
