Deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country lies beautiful New Braunfels. Founded in 1845 by German Settlers. Located just north of San Antonio, Texas. It's known for the Comal and Guadalupe rivers, which wind past leafy parks like Landa and Cypress Bend. Original 1800s German buildings like Gruene Hall are preserved in the Gruene Historic District. To the west, walkways snake through underground limestone caves at Natural Bridge Caverns. Our city is world famous for its water recreation and activities, so why don’t you come take a swim, tube float, fishing trip, or kayak adventure? Those seeking thrills and refreshment away from rustic river charm should head to one of America’s toprated water parks, Schlitterbahn Water Park & Resort. This flagship property spans two separate adventure parks, offering 51 fun-filled water attractions over 70 acres. The attached Schlitterbahn Resort means you
can stay right on the property, with dozens of water slides, wave pools, and other attractions right outside your doorstep. For additional outdoor water adventures, the 70-acre Texas Ski Ranch is a thrill a minute, with wakeboarding, skateboarding, water skiing, and paintball – plus a 15,000-sq.-ft. trampoline park! Summer nights come alive with live music in New Braunfels, where you will find a variety of concerts happening every day of the week throughout the city, and in nearby Gruene. With German names on the street signs, summer bier gartens and the annual Wurstfest, New Braunfels blends the character of its German namesake with the charm and beauty of Texas Hill Country. Old World heritage is abundant in the Historic District of Gruene, featuring the ruins of the original Gristmill and live music at the Gruene Hall. Those in search of more modern fun can check out the Schlitterbahn waterpark, spelunk in the Natural Bridge Caverns or test the waters at Canyon Lake.
