New Braunfels is deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country and is the county seat of Comal County. Located approximately 32 miles northeast of San Antonio, New Braunfels is a principal city of the San Antonio–New Braunfels metropolitan area. New Braunfels has a humid subtropical climate, characterized by hot, humid summers and mild winters. Going back in history, hundreds of people from Germany settled in Texas beginning in 1844. Prince Carl of Solms-Braunfels and the German settlers stopped near the Comal Springs in 1845, where Prince Carl purchased 1,300 acres. This is where Prince Carl established the colony of New Braunfels, which he named in honor of his home of Solms-Braunfels, Germany. New Braunfels grew so quickly that it became the fourth largest city in Texas by 1850.

New Braunfels has a population of 57,740 and the racial makeup of the city is 86.8% White, 35.0% Hispanic, 1.9% African American, and 1.0% Asian (2010 Census). The average crime rate makes New Braunfels a semi-dangerous city to reside in.

The Gruene Historic District is a village with a rustic old Texan feel that allows visitors to enjoy live music at the Gruene Hall or eat in the ruins of the original gristmill. New Braunfels is known for hosting the biggest gourd festival in Texas, the Lone Star Gourd Festival, a festival that promotes and celebrates the artistry of gourds. To celebrate New Braunfels’ strong German heritage, a festival known as Wurstfest is held in the city every November. The Texas Clay Festival features the work of over 70 potters and clay artists from all over Texas.

The Comal Springs are located in New Braunfels and consist of seven major springs, making it the largest concentration of naturally occurring freshwater springs in Texas and the American Southwest. The Comal Springs gave rise to the Comal River, the shortest river in Texas and one of the shortest rivers in the world. The Comal River is home to the fountain darter, a small freshwater fish that is almost extinct. Many tourists visit New Braunfels in the summer to engage in water recreational activities on the Comal River and the Guadalupe River. The clear water and the mild currents make both rivers perfect for scuba diving, swimming, and tubing. A top tourist attraction in the city is Landa Park, a 51-acre riverside park that contains a train ride, a miniature golf course, nature trails, picnic tables, and playgrounds. Other points of interest in the city include the Schlitterbahn Waterpark New Braunfels, the Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo, the McKenna Children's Museum, and the New Braunfels Railroad Museum.
