Fredericksburg is a city of beauty and charm. Its founding includes a rich history of people making a good life in a new place with the help of friends and neighbors. Working together, they created a city where all could live up to their potential, participate in activities, and benefit from services to enhance the quality of their lives. The spirit of working together to create a beautiful, livable place is still alive today in Fredericksburg and that spirit is responsible for the ambiance of the city today. History in Fredericksburg is alive and well. Experience our past through the Pioneer Museum Complex and the Sauer Beckmann Living History Farm – sites that tell the story of our German settlers in the Texas Hill Country. It’s no wonder people flock to the Texas Hill Country. The rolling hills, colorful wildflowers, and winding country roads are enough to make anyone want to commune with nature. If the outdoors is your cup of tea, you’ll find it hard to fit all this is in one trip. For the binocular-toting crowd, the Fredericksburg area has everything from bats (and millions of them) to 300 species of birds. For the gotta-get-up-and-move types, we’re also popular for hiking or rock climbing Enchanted Rock, and for bicycling and horseback riding.
