Site Description

New Braunfels is a small town of approximately 60,000 people located in the hill country of Texas, just 30 miles northeast of downtown San Antonio. Its German heritage is evident in the city’s history, culture and cuisine.

Services will be held in the New Braunfels Convention Center, where we will have exclusive use of this beautiful facility throughout the Feast. Complimentary coffee and tea will be provided every morning prior to services. Anticipated attendance is 350.

Nestled among the convergence of two rivers, many recreational opportunities in New Braunfels include water. Whether it is enjoying the famous Schlitterbahn Water Park and Resort, or wakeboarding without a boat at the Texas Ski Ranch, floating one of the rivers, or swimming in the largest spring-fed pool in Texas—there are plenty of ways to get wet!

For those interested in history, there are seven museums to visit and the historic district of Gruene (a district within the city of New Braunfels) to explore. And for dining, there are many restaurants nearby where visitors can sample German dishes, Texas barbecue and contemporary fare.  

If you’d like to venture beyond the local area, San Antonio is just 30 miles south on Interstate 35. There you can tour the historic Alamo, wander the River Walk, go up the Tower of the Americas, visit SeaWorld and enjoy Six Flags Fiesta Texas theme park.

The average high temperature in New Braunfels in October is 81 degrees.
