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
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.
After graduating college my best friend and I did a road trip around Texas and Fredericksburg/Enchanted Rock was our first stop! 😀 so many great memories!
You guys are super adorable! Bingeing on all your videos. Great editing and super informative. 👌🥰💯
We love your Vlogs and we are from Germany, your Kartoffelsalat pronouncing was very well ☺️ Love from Germany, Nadine und Kevin ❤️
So happy to see yall in Fredericksburg! I love Otto’s! So yummy! I just realized my profile picture is of me on enchanted rock. Y’all are so inspiring. Sending hugs from the Texas hill country.
Jokes at the end were funny! 😂 You guys are great and always waiting for the next adventure!
i love watching your vlogs, you two are so cute !
Me and my family been through Fredericks when we would go to Granger lake and I thought it was so pretty
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.

"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!
Hi guys, good to see you! 🥰 And that you’ve found a bit of freedom!!!! YEAH!!! 👏👏👏
Go away Covid! 🤨🙏
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 🙈
Chill vlog. Enjoy Texas!
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!
The climate in Texas is obviously not at all like here in Germany.😅
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
One of my favorite places Enchanted Rock I live about 10 miles away from there Crabapple Road Fredericksburg Texas
Your pronounciation of "Kartoffelsalat" was nearly perfect for the first trial ^^ – God bless
My mother lives in Kerrville TX
Pam and Jim Halpert finally made it out of the office
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
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.
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!
The bloopers in the end are so great…
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. 🙁
Ekardt peaches has the best peaches
Great vlog! Boy, I could go for some of that ice cream! I loved your out takes…made me laugh out loud! Can’t wait to hear what your plans are!😜
It was my now wife and i’s first hike as well!
What the prettiest scene of this park??? Thinking of doing a proposal their
Baaaack on the road 🙂 🙂 🙂
Great news about potentially being back on the road. Hopefully 4th July is the head out date for me in the UK as well and weekends away and some longer tours can begin!!!!!
We living a German heritage city with a 12 day Oktoberfest festival in, yes October each year, lot’s of delicious food and beers to enjoy!
My husband and our pup Finn each got a grooming last week 😊 Both feeling much happier and cooler😊🍁
Back on the road – good for you guys- when will you move to other states
He’s always smelling stuff 🤣🤣
Love your videos! Good quality video, informative, entertaining and cute!

Senf auf die Wurst🤗
I don’t want to know how bad is my english pronunciation
This is very helpful!!! We are going there to Frederickburg for the weekend 2 weeks from now and I have no clue what’s open and what not, thank you for this video!!! I’ll be posting mine too on my channel 😁
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.
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 :).
Drive through fredericksburg on my delivery route. Beautiful place. I see all these shops but can’t stop because I’m in the delivery truck! 🙁
My fiance and I are going to drive down there soon!
Great video! That peach ice cream looks amazing!
Man I really want to go to Fredericksburg now! It’s a little too far from Houston for a day trip though 😭
