History

Welcome to New Braunfels, Texas!

Nestled in the heart of Texas, this is the only city in the state founded by German royalty.  On March 14, 1845, Prince Carl of Solms – Braunfels, Germany, purchased 1,265 acres for $1,112.  It was then, the “City of a Prince” was born.  Seven days later, on Good Friday, Prince Carl led the first settlers into New Braunfels, which was named after his ancestral German home.  Three hundred forty-two Town Lots were surveyed and deeded to a Founding Colonist on “immigrant status” or sold or granted to him.

One of the New Braunfels’ Founding Colonists, Heinrich Voelcker, born in 1809 in Hanover, Germany, acquired Lot 274 (property where the Comal Inn is today) in a trade.  In early 1855, Voelcker sold off Lot 274 to Heinrich Loechmann for $100.  The New Braunfels Cottage portion of the Comal Inn is one of the original fachwerk homes in New Braunfels (built in circa mid 1850’s).  In 1865, public records indicated Lot 274, with improvements, was sold for $500 in gold.

Today, this historical piece of property is the home of the Comal Inn.  The Inn features 2 quaint cottages (New Braunfels and Texas Cottages) and 3 individual private rooms (Cypress, Mountain Laurel, and the Juniper Rooms).  We invite you to come stay, relax and enjoy the Comal Inn and all the wonderful things New Braunfels has to offer.
