Fredericksburg’s biggest draws: Texas Hill Country; opportunities for golfing, wine tasting, and antiquing.

Founded in the 19th century by German immigrants, this municipality in Texas Hill Country has never forgotten its roots.

German-themed bakeries and beer gardens dot the downtown, and Oktoberfest remains a major celebration.
