A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun. People viewing the eclipse from locations where the Moon’s shadow completely covers the Sun – known as the path of totality – will experience a total solar eclipse. The sky will darken, as if it were dawn or dusk, and people will see the Sun’s corona, or outer atmosphere, which is usually obscured by the bright face of the Sun.

Will the path of totality occur over New Braunfels?
New Braunfels will experience a deep partial eclipse, not a total eclipse like our hill country neighbors in Fredericksburg and Kerrville who are just a 90 minutes away. A deep partial eclipse turns the sun into a dazzling crescent and offers viewers a spectacular natural phenomenon.

Whether the total or a deep partial eclipse is beckoning, pull up a chair, a tube, or a kayak and make New Braunfels your home base for the 2024 Solar Eclipse Over Texas. With plenty of lodging available you can enjoy outdoor adventures or cozy up with a drink at one of our award-winning restaurants, wineries, or breweries, cause there's something for everyone in New Braunfels.
