Fredericksburg, Texas Holidays

Fredericksburg is a city of beauty and charm. Its founding includes a rich history of people making a good life in a new place with the help of friends and neighbours. Working together, they created a city where all could live up to their potential, participate in activities, and benefit from services to enhance the quality of their lives. The spirit of working together to create a beautiful, liveable place is still alive today in Fredericksburg and that spirit is responsible for the ambiance of the city today

Located 75 miles west of Austin, Fredericksburg was founded in the mid-1800s by German colonists and named after Prince Frederick of Prussia. To protect the community, a peace treaty was signed with the local Comanche tribe -- and it's still in effect today, possibly the only Indian treaty that hasn't been broken.
For many years residents here spoke only German, and it wasn't until World War I that English began taking over. Even today, though, there are "Wilkommen" signs all over town, shopkeepers greet patrons with a hearty "Guten Tag," and the central town square is called the Markplatz. The square is dominated by the city's landmark, an eight-sided building called Vereins Kirche ("society church"), a replica of the original structure built by settlers to serve as a town hall, school, fort, and church. It's now a history museum.
40% of Texas’ peaches are gron in the area.
There are 14 local wineries, making the city the centre of Texas Wine Country.
People flock from all over to visit Enchanted rock.
