    Traveling to the Frontier

    by VeronicaG Written Jan 13, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When Prince Solms collected his group of immigrants wanting to settle in America, they quickly learned that space was an issue!

    One trunk this size had to hold all of their worldly goods, including clothing, that their family would need to begin life in New Braunfels. No matter how large the family--three members or ten, all would have to place what they were bringing into one container.

    This display at the Sophienburg Museum illustrated how limited their possessions were.

    New Braunsfels has a great German community. Good hearty German cooking in most of the local eating establishments (not the touristy ones). Take your time, relax, find a place you will enjoy, they're everywhere.

    River Rules : It is unlawful to carry glass containers of any kind anywhere on the river. Your drinks may be confiscated and you may be fined! Styrofoam (including cheap ice chests) also is not permitted on the River because it can break easily and create litter.

    The German culture is huge here, but it's also touristry. Mexican culture is big also and it's more down to Earth. The big deal is the 'Central Texas' culture you'll find in small towns like Greune. Great Antique shopping there.
