The seat of Comal County was established in 1845 on the Comal River by German settlers, led by Prince Carl of Solms-Braunfels. Successful farming, ranching and abundant water from large springs contributed to the early prosperity of the settlement. German influence in tradition, culture and language is still prominent. The city is famous for sausages, breads and popular river resorts. The Guadalupe and Comal rivers provide excellent water recreation for visitors.
Wurstfest (sausage festival)—in early November—salutes the "best of the wurst." It features singing societies, traditional German bands, dancing groups, sausages, historical exhibits, and special events. www.wurstfest.com
