Named one of the most romantic small towns in the world, its no wonder there is so much to do when visiting Fredericksburg. The best part is, this town has German roots and during the Weihnachtszeit or the Christmas season, Fredericksburg has often been compared to a holiday Hallmark movie and with good reason. Whether it's ice skating and marveling at the town's 30-foot Christmas tree and authentic German Christmas pyramid, shopping along a Main Street decked out in its holiday finest, enjoying a festive wine event and local cuisine, or experiencing one of the many special events, Fredericksburg is the perfect holiday getaway. Be sure to check that link for a list of all Holiday activities.

Holiday magic aside, Fredericksburg has a ton of outdoor activities for those families that want to explore the local natural beauty. From Enchanted Rock to Lyndon B. Johnson State Park, and much more in terms of hiking and cycling, Fredericksburg can satisfy any outdoor taste. When it comes to dining, you can go with local favorites inspired by German cuisine like the Old German Bakery and Restaurant or Otto’s. If the kid’s are picky or you want something a bit more flexible, try Sunset Grill for breakfast or Alamo Spring Café for comfort food. When it comes to lodging Fredericksburg has some unique B&B options among its inn and hotels. Don’t try to pronounce the name, but Rarumpelpunzeldornaschenwittchen is a magical German fairytale in the middle of Texas Wine Country There are just two cottages, both with fireplaces, gardens, full kitchens and European charm. You’ll receive a hearty German breakfast each morning, while at night you can wind down with a wonderful local glass of wine from one of the many wineries nearby. If your family wants something a bit more hotel or inn like, we recommend Inn on Barons Creek. This lavish inn has sites that overlook downtown Fredericksburg and offers a world class spa.
