Texas Christmas in Historic Fredericksburg Homes

The heart of Texas Hill Country is Fredericksburg TX real estate, especially at Christmas time.  With over 300 charming Bed & Breakfasts and Inns, you will feel right at home in Fredericksburg Texas for the holidays.  Whether you are all alone or taking the brood for a few days away from a primary home in Austin or San Antonio, Fredericksburg’s breadth of German and American enchants visitors from near and far.  Take the Hill Country Regional Christmas Lighting Trail all the way from Texas lands in San Antonio to Boerne, Burnet, Fredericksburg, Johnson City, and back through Marble Falls, New Braunfels, and Wimberley.

Our downtown Fredericksburg Marktplatz wonderland and B&B landscapes twinkle all during December for the Season of Lights in Fredericksburg.  All of Fredericksburg—from spectacular scenery and parks, to wineries and breweries, museums and galleries, boutique shops and fabled restaurants to the splendid sense of humor—will be the present under the tree.

See photos and displays of 150 years of tradition at local museums.  Laugh at the Longhorn steer all lit up for the Weihnachten parade down Main Street.  Make it a learning experience by stopping at the world-class National Museum of the Pacific War.  The grandfather of Chester W. Nimitz, commander in chief of the Pacific Allied Forces during World War II operated a hotel in Fredericksburg, Chester’s birthplace.

Do you want more adventure?  Plan on a family horseback ride.  Some may be up for a gallop to Luckenbach or trot out to see the huge tree at the Lyndon B. Johnson Ranch in Johnson City.  While you are there, visit the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm in LBJ State Park.  On the other hand, take a carriage ride past the million lights sponsored by Pedernales Electrical Co-op.

Touring the historic B&B establishments and wineries, theaters, and museums brings you right into our little European village for some southern loving.  At copleynews.com, freelance writer Ruth A. Hill describes the journey:  “Wherever you stop, Texas Hill Country is full of gemutlichkeit (German for cozy, comfortable, warm, inviting and hospitable) during the Christmas season.”

For a longer-term plan, visit us in 2011 during a German festival or BBQ.  For expert guidance in your personal search for the ultimate piece of the Hill Country, please call Dale E.
