Hotel - Sophies Gasthaus

A Historic Hotel in New Braunfels

Originally a private estate dating back to 1906, Sophie’s Gasthaus was beautifully restored to its current state in 2021.

As a boutique hotel, you’ll find that Sophie’s Gasthaus differs from many historic hotels in Texas with our moody, art-gallery-inspired interiors while maintaining the home’s original charm and German architecture.

Our historic hotel in New Braunfels is the perfect home base for your getaway. Inside, the hotel offers luxurious private guest rooms and suites, adorned with beautifully curated artwork and decor. Outside, the hotel settles gracefully onto spacious grounds featuring a private courtyard, expansive pool and a beautifully manicured lawn.

Booking the entire property grants full access to the kitchen, offering culinary artists and caterers a beautiful and functional space. The adjacent dining rooms and exterior patios are ideal for private events, meetings and pop-up experiences. Contact us to inquire about booking the entire property or special events.

We’re a pet-friendly hotel – a New Braunfels vacation doesn’t mean you have to leave your four-legged friends behind! Your furry friends are welcome to stay the night. When booking please select the furry guest package.

Please contact us for more details or to reserve the entire property.
