New Braunfels, Texas

As the seat of Comal County, New Braunfels was established in 1845 on the Comal River by German settlers led by Prince Carl of Solms-Braunfels. Successful farming, ranching, and abundant water from the large springs contributed to the early prosperity of the settlement. German influence in tradition, culture and language is still prominent, as New Braunfels is famous for sausages, breads, and popular river resorts.

The Guadalupe and Comal rivers provide excellent water recreation for visitors. The Guadalupe, between Canyon Dam and New Braunfels, is famous for its exciting rapids and sparkling clear waters and very popular with tubers. Much of the land along the river is private. Please respect the property rights and also help preserve this natural resource. Strict enforcement of laws and regulations applies to the river areas.

The annual Wurstfest (sausage festival), lasting 10 days in early November, salutes the "best of the wurst." Wurstfest features singing societies, traditional German bands, dancing groups and sausages of every description, in addition to historical exhibits, art shows and special events.
