Gruene (pronounced /ˈɡriːn/, like the color "green") is a town in Comal County, Texas, which was originally named Goodwin. Once a 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.

Standing high above the town buildings, the Gruene water tower is a beacon for miles around to all visitors coming to Historic Gruene for another entertaining visit. Whether you are a "Weekender" or in town for the week or longer, Gruene is a wonderful "happening" for all!
Henry D. Gruene, the town's founder, originally bought land for a cotton farm in 1872 with his father and brothers. He built his first home in 1872 and modified it over the years. It still stands proudly with its Victoria galleries today as the Gruene Mansion Inn. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a designated Texas Historic Landmark.
Visitors from far and near, love the town of Gruene so much that they keep coming back every chance they get. No matter what your desires are, you are only moments away from shopping, eating, wine tasting, tubing, dancing, and lodging in just about any direction.
