Help the Sophienburg Museum continue to tell the REAL stories of New Braunfels
The Sophienburg will be closed Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving.
Thanks to all the shoppers, merchants, sponsors, volunteers and staff who made Weihnachtsmarkt 2017 happen!
Welcome to the Sophienburg Museum and Archives.
Take the journey with Prince Carl and his group of German colonists as they cross the ocean and make their way into central Texas. Admire their courage and determination to establish a new colony at the edge of Indian Territory. Exhibits, rich in local artifacts, photographic images, maps and documents, take visitors through the history and cultural heritage of New Braunfels and Comal County. The Sophienburg Museum offers public lectures, school programs and community events that promote the area’s unique history.
