Willkommen at Friesenhaus
Voted Best German Food in New Braunfels!
- NBCitizen “Best of the Wurst: 2012” (Feb 2012)
Welcome to family owned and operated Friesenhaus German Restaurant and Bakery located in the heart of
New Braunfels! German family Dirks arrived in 2004 to open the German restaurant Friesenhaus in the
former Krause’s Café building. After a long remodeling process, the Friesenhaus finally opened its doors on
March 7, 2006. Why call it Friesenhaus? The Dirks family descended from a northern region of Germany
bordering the North Sea called “Friesland,” so Friesenhaus means the “House of the Frisians.” This region
of Germany is best known for delicious fish specialties such as “Rollmops” and a strong, black “Ostfriesen”
hot tea, which we mix in house as the “Friesenhaus Original” tea served with Kluntje sugar pieces and heavy
German Beer & Wine
There are 16 German beers all on draft ranging from Pilsner, Lager, Dunkel, Bock, Black, and Wheat beers.
All of our beers are served in authentic German glassware ranging from .3 liter to a full 2 liter “Das Boot” glass.
The bar also offers a wide selection of regional German wines ranging from a dry Pinot Gris white wine to a
fruity white Spätlese wine with many more in between.
The Friesenhaus Restaurant & Bakery offers a unique German experience that the whole family can enjoy!
Every Friday and Saturday night, we feature live German accordion music by local musicians. On the
