Downtown Parking

Unlimited Free Parking

There are several long-term, free public surface parking lots located in the Downtown area. The City of New Braunfels provides parking in the lot adjacent to the First Protestant Church Mornhinweg Center (located at 205 S. Castell Avenue) six days a week, Monday through Saturday. Additionally, the City provides free public parking in the lot adjacent to Fire Station No. 1 (located at 169 S. Hill Avenue). Please note that the covered parking at the Fire Station No. 1 lot is reserved for firefighters. Free parking is also available in two Comal County lots. The large County lot at the intersection of Bridge Street and N. Seguin Avenue as well as several spaces at the Comal County Tax Office (located adjacent to 259 N. Seguin Avenue) have been designated as free public parking.

Two-Hour Parking Zone
In addition to the public surface lots, there is an abundance of free, two-hour parking along San Antonio Street, Castell Avenue, and Seguin Avenue. Vehicles parked in these spaces are prohibited from remaining in the same on-street parking space for more than two-hours at a time. The purpose of the parking zone is to encourage frequent turnover of downtown on-street parking spaces.

Visitor Permits

Temporary Visitors Permits are available free of charge, for persons visiting from out of town and residing in a hotel located within the Downtown Two-Hour Parking Zone. For more information, contact the city’s Downtown Development Coordinator at (830) 221-4057.
