Fire at Marktplatz in New Braunfels, Texas 2 Weeks Ago

Sun Dec 01, 2019 4:00 am

About two weeks ago, a fire destroyed the Marktplatz structure in New Braunfels, Texas and the metal roof had to be peeled backed for firefighters to gain access. The nearby Wursthalle sustained some damage, but remained structurally sound. The organizers of the Wurstfest are hoping to rebuild by next year's event. It is a terrible loss for the City of New Braunfels and I hope that the owners of the festival will build back stronger with a better Marktplatz. I feel that the new Marktplatz should be rebuilt as faithfully as possible.

As a San Antonian and a neighbor to New Braunfels I am really sorry to hear that happened and hope that the Marktplatz is fully restored. New Braunfels has such a rich history and think all of the great landmarks should be maintained as much as possible.

Thankfully, Marktplatz will be rebuilt though.
