German influence provides a variety of activities for couples and families. Big city entertainment options with small town charm and beauty can be found nearly half-way between Austin and San Antonio.

Water Activities

The founders built the town around outdoor water activities. This popular Texas Hill Country Destinations ranked as one of the top water parks in America by US News and World Report, Schlitterbahn offers sixty-five acres of exciting and innovative rides for adults and children alike.

If you want a slower, more relaxing experience, consider tubing down the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers. Each offers a different experience. The Guadalupe’s water flow is controlled by Canyon Dam, so the temperature and current can change. You should plan to spend around three hours tubing this section of the Guadalupe River. An underground spring feeds the Comal River, so the water stays around seventy degrees and provides a calm, shorter trip than the Guadalupe float.

Amazing Food and Drink

Named after Braunfels in Germany, New Braunfels offers more food, wine and beer options than you can imagine. Delectable Bavarian food is on full display to whet the appetites of all food lovers. The historic Faust Hotel and Brewery offers an amazing menu of great pub food and beer brewed right on-site. Looking for something more upscale for the two of you, then try The Alpine Haus.

Texas’ oldest dance hall, Gruene Hall maintains its original layout to this day. Since 1878, musicians and patrons have enjoyed fun-filled nights. Bands like Blue Water HighwayBob SchneiderZane WilliamsLea Ann WomackMelissa EtheridgeTanya Tucker and many more are scheduled to perform. With so many headlining acts performing, you will want to purchase tickets online in advance.

Whether you like food, wine, watersports, or rodeos, this small town has all the big city options for fun.
