Top Local Activities and Attractions
New Braunfels offers a variety of fun and unique area actives and attractions. Here are a few of our favorites...
Comal River- The Comal River is known as one of the shortest rivers in the world. Lucky for us, it's also one of the most enjoyable! Grab a tube and experience the three mile trek with family and fiends. The spring- fed water stays at a cool, constant 72 degrees year round.
Schlitterbahn- The world's #1 rated waterpark, with 65 acres of family fun along the banks of the spring- fed Comal River.
Guadalupe River- The Guadalupe River below Canyon Dam is a true Texas treasure, offering countless water recreation activities such as tubing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, and paddle boarding. Anglers can cast a line year- round, as rainbow trout are stocked annually each winter.
Natural Bridge Caverns- The largest cavern system in Texas, and it's 'deep in the heart of Texas'! Bring the whole family and be sure to also try out the lantern tours, canopy adventures, zip lining, and bat watching.
Landa Park- Landa is a sprawling 96 acre park in the middle of New Braunfels. Some features of Landa Park include Comal Springs, miles of nature trails, an miniature train tour, putt- putt golf, paddle boats, several playground areas, and dozens of picnic tables under the ancient, shady oak trees.
Stars and Stripes Drive in Movie Theater- With a full restaurant, double features, and a playground for the kids, you'll be in for a night of family fun. Watching a feature movie outdoors, while curled up in the back of a pickup truck or in your favorite lawn chair is the only way to go!
