Gruene, Texas

As a lifelong resident of New Braunfels, Texas. Gruene is one of my most favorite place to bring out of town guests, enjoy an evening of live music, good food and a look back at yesterday. You will find a variety of things to do in Gruene located on the Guadalupe River.

Gruene (pronounced /ˈɡriːn/, like the color "green") is a town in Comal County, Texas, which was originally named Goodwin. Once a Welcome to Gruene Texas!significant cotton-producing community along the Guadalupe River, the economy is now supported primarily by tourism. Gruene lies entirely within the city limits of New Braunfels. Much of Gruene was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on April 21, 1975.[1]
