Weekend Getaway To Fredericksburg Texas


Fredericksburg Highlights

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
