Originally settled over 150 years ago, Boerne was first established by German immigrants who first entered this land near the cool waters of the Cibolo Creek. The city's friendly and inviting locals show a deep respect for their cultural and ancestral heritage. With Boerne's central location, it is an ideal 'getaway' destination being a convenient drive from several major Texas cities.

A stroll through Boerne's charming downtown historic district offers a world of specialty shops including great antiques, fine home accessories, unique gift items, trendy boutiques, jewelry, and art galleries. From downtown shopping to hiking through City Lake Park, Boerne and its visitors welcome you with open arms!
