New Braunfels is a town about 30 miles outside of San Antonio. The town holds “Wurstfest”, a German-style sausage festival, every November, drawing on the city’s strong German heritage. Every December, the town celebrates Wassailfest in the historic downtown.
New Braunfels draws a large number of tourists, particularly in the summer because of the cold-spring rivers that run through the city. Many generations of families and college students return every summer to tube for miles down the Guadalupe and Comal rivers. New Braunfels is the site of the original waterpark, the Schlitterbahn WaterPark Resort. The Ernest Eikel Skate Park attracts many skate board enthusiasts.
Full of activities and culture, New Braunfels has it all.
