New Braunfels Vacation Guide

A New Braunfels vacation is a favorite choice for Texas getaways because of its many outdoor activities including tubing on the river, the famous Schlitterbahn Waterpark, extreme sport options and more.

Being 30 miles North of San Antonio and 46 miles South of Austin, it is a central base for a romantic weekend or any kind of Hill Country Getaway.

This town was founded by Prince Carl of Solm-Braunfels, Germany. It was settled by German immigrants in the 1840s and this is still evident in the architecture, food and festivals, such as Wurstfest.
