Fredericksburg

4.2

Fritztown

The city of Fredericksburg was settled by German immigrants in the mid-19th century, and has managed to retain its distinctly German charm. Its main thoroughfare is lined with German-style buildings housing attractions such as traditional bakeries, beer gardens, and quaint souvenir shops. With many families with German heritage still living here today, you may hear the language spoken, especially when residents celebrate the town's roots during themed festivals. Located in the heart of Texas hill country, the town of about 10,000 sits surrounded by vineyards and peach orchards.
