I went to this German town in the middle of Hill County last month. It was a cold day so our winery tour and German pastries were perfect! This little town is about an hour away from Austin at you can see Germany everywhere. Bakeries, breweries, wineries, antique shops, decorations. I really like it. You just need one day to see unless you plan to relax in one of their old houses!
You can easily reach everythiing because all the interesting attractions are within the main streets of the town. Do not miss the wine tasting, Texas has some really good wines and, if you can, wash away the flavor of the wine with some German-style bread.
Great place for a weekend getaway!
