Fredericksburg, Texas Day Trip: Enchanted Rock, peach ice cream, & German food!

We headed 1.5 hours outside of Austin for a little day trip to Fredericksburg, Texas, a cool little German town in the Texas Hill Country. We spent the day hiking up Enchanted Rock, enjoying delicious homemade peach ice cream, and eating German food!

    Love Fredericksburg great food and vibe. Almost feels like I’m back in Germany

  2. Amanda Atwood on January 31, 2023 at 4:39 pm

    So many fun things to see and do in Fredericksburg- bringing back all the feels and making me miss TX!

    I don’t know if my eyes ere messing with me, but that rock actually looked like it was moving, LOL. Don’t punch cactus, they bite. My dad has some friends in Fredricksburg, and he said he had some BBQ out there that was smoked using peach wood. Apparently smoking with peach wood adds a whole new flavor to the BBQ, but it’s hard to come by peach wood, almost making it a delicacy. We are headed to Enchanted rock right now for some cold weather tent camping. I found y’all again, trying to see if the bathrooms and showers have a heater in there. I guess we will have to film that and put it in our video. Y’all, rock, we love your adventures. Might have to find some peach ice cream this weekend.

  9. Ellen Markham on January 31, 2023 at 4:47 pm

  10. wayne 2001 TX on January 31, 2023 at 4:47 pm

    Me and my family been through Fredericks when we would go to Granger lake and I thought it was so pretty

  11. J. James on January 31, 2023 at 4:53 pm

    You guys has us at peach ice cream 😁 I’m not sure what it is but for some reason the edit style on this episode really moves in a different but fun fun way. Love it:) We’re actually heading to San Antonio for the 4th of July weekend and hoping to hit a few of these stops before returning to the Gulf Coast.
    Thanks for this share topped off with a yummy foodie tease.
    James and Kim

    "I punched a cactus by accident" 🤦‍♀️🤣Just me or did anyone else get really squeamish when Adam was pulling out the needles 🤢 I feel you guys with the need to pre-book doing anything and there not being slots available. We got National Trust passes for Christmas from -my mum- Santa and we’ve barely been able to use them, every time I try and book something for a weekend, it’s already full. I’m keeping everything crossed that the next blog sees you both back on the road – dying to know where you’re headed, but if this video is anything to go by, I’m guessing north… less hot!

  13. Cathy Warriner on January 31, 2023 at 4:54 pm

    Hi guys, good to see you! 🥰 And that you’ve found a bit of freedom!!!! YEAH!!! 👏👏👏
    Go away Covid! 🤨🙏

  14. OliverJH on January 31, 2023 at 4:55 pm

    I’m loving these Texas vlogs looks awesome 👍 thanks for working so hard to get us the views from the top 👏👏 I’m like Adam I can’t wait to get a haircut 🙈

  15. Shawn Jimenez on January 31, 2023 at 4:55 pm

    Chill vlog. Enjoy Texas!

  16. Brad Gingerich on January 31, 2023 at 4:56 pm

    Well this was fun! Great video guys…Now I need some peach ice cream! Sunteti frumos! Time for you to get back on the road!!!!

    It’s so nice up that way. Like your shirt Adam!

  19. Yasmine Steinbauer on January 31, 2023 at 4:58 pm

    The climate in Texas is obviously not at all like here in Germany.😅

  20. erika lopez on January 31, 2023 at 4:58 pm

    You all should go cave exploring it’s really fun. Clear river is also a really good ice cream store you all should also check out Bear Creek and. If you all come back to Fredericksburg check out Hilda they have really great breakfast tacos but make sure you get there early there’s a long line in the mornings

  21. TX GT on January 31, 2023 at 5:01 pm

    One of my favorite places Enchanted Rock I live about 10 miles away from there Crabapple Road Fredericksburg Texas

  22. Jörg Düfer on January 31, 2023 at 5:02 pm

    Your pronounciation of "Kartoffelsalat" was nearly perfect for the first trial ^^ – God bless

    My mother lives in Kerrville TX

  24. Daniel Miller on January 31, 2023 at 5:05 pm

    Pam and Jim Halpert finally made it out of the office

  25. Mr Maniac on January 31, 2023 at 5:10 pm

    Next time you need to take a drive through Willow city loop it’s between Fredericksburg and enchanted rock it’s one of the most beautiful places the drive-through in the Hill country Especially when the bluebonnets are in full bloom

  26. Boards For The Future on January 31, 2023 at 5:11 pm

    The peach stand that they went to is really good. It has really good peaches and some of the best prices. If you want amazing peaches for a super cheap price, drive down Ranch Road 1376 past KOA campgrounds, and there will be a place with a giant sign that says peaches on it. It is run by our gillespie county commissioner. All of the peaches are a really good price, and all of the fruit is organic. He uses his own homemade organic pest repellent that is 100% organic and safe (no pesticides). He is also just a really nice guy to talk to.

  27. 0megacron on January 31, 2023 at 5:11 pm

    Wait wait wait, the thing where you have to walk up the rocky trails onto that big dome-shaped rock… you do this for fun? Also, why’d you go to Otto’s and get the wurst platter? You should’ve paid a little more and got a better one LOL!

  28. Nina Song on January 31, 2023 at 5:15 pm

    The bloopers in the end are so great…

  29. Lockguy 26 on January 31, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    My wife and I just spent a week in Fredricksburg. We stayed at a really neat cabin in the Gotton Gin B&B village. The blue bonnets were not quite blooming yet but we are also in a drought. 🙁

  30. Willow Mist Farm on January 31, 2023 at 5:16 pm

  31. Suzanne Aydelotte on January 31, 2023 at 5:18 pm

  44. Boards For The Future on January 31, 2023 at 5:32 pm

    I live in Fredericksburg tx and it is super awesome! I would recommend checking it out, but come during the winter, because we have all kinds of christmas stuff and it gets really hot during the summer.

  45. Falcon Eddie on January 31, 2023 at 5:33 pm

    Awesome video guys! Keep the shiny side up, and the greasy side down on your travels, and watch out fer Smokey.

    Awesome road trip folks. I have just found you and watched y our video and I loved it. I am flying into Dallas next weekend will be driving to Fredericksburg and I am looking forward to it. I will be on a quest for Spaghetti Eis lol. I travel to Germany at least once, twice, or sometimes three times a year (pre-COVID of course). I have a YouTube channel and I love sharing my experiences. I have subscribed to your channel as I am looking forward to viewing your past and future videos :). Thank You both for sharing :).
