Looking for a quick weekend getaway? Visit Fredericksburg Texas! Located just an hour away from Austin, Fredericksburg is rich with the culture of German pioneers who settled here over 160 years ago. Fredericksburg features five weeks of festival holiday entertainment, running Thanksgiving weekend through New Year’s Eve, with a 26- foot German Christmas Pyramid and 30-foot Community Christmas Tree at Marktplatz.
Here’s the details of my trip with Austin Food Magazine!
Where to Stay: Das Peach Haus Farmhouse
The Das Peach Haus farmhouse is a spacious and cozy farmhouse originally dated from 1910. Situated on 6+ acres and surrounded by another 60 acres of pecan and peach orchards, it is a true ‘country’ retreat that is conveniently located just one mile from the Main Street shopping area.
Sit back with a cup of coffee on the back porch and watch the beautiful sunrise over the hill country to the roosters crowing from the chicken coop!
Where to Eat: Airport Diner
Watch the planes come and go from your booth at the Airport Diner, a classic 1940’s diner and one of a kind creation, located next to the Hanger Hotel and airport parking ramp. The Diner serves a variety of breakfast favorites, burgers, and chocolate malts.
