“Welcome!” “Willkommen!” and “Howdy!” are three things you can expect to hear upon visiting New Braunfels, set deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. German settlers founded the town in 1845. Those pioneers held strong ties to one another as new immigrants and maintained their heritage throughout the decades. Today’s New Braunfels residents are happy to have guests in their thriving part of the Lone Star State – a place where history and tradition meet prosperity, growth, and happiness.

No matter the verbiage, the pleasure of the New Braunfels style of hospitality is one afforded to all visitors.  Take a trip to this Hill Country town for great dining, excellent atmosphere, live music, and plenty of historical depth and detail. The shopping is most definitely nothing to sneeze at either!
