Fredericksburg's Delicious German and Dutch Dining Spots

Fredericksburg restaurants are commonly German or Dutch in cuisine, because of the strong influence that the cultures have on the town. It is one of the best spots in the country to find delicious and authentic German food.

Old German Bakery and Restaurant
225 W. Main Street
Fredericksburg, TX 78624
(830) 997-9084

Although your Fredericksburg Bed and Breakfast will surely supply you with a lovely breakfast, BBonline recommends that you try to save a little bit of room for pastries at the Old German Bakery and Restaurant. Authentic German pastries and dishes like bratz, strudels and schnitzels are served among American favorites. Old German Bakery has a casual setting and the staff is pleasant and quick. Prices are affordable. They are open every day for breakfast and lunch, but try to get there as early as you can because pastries go fast. Be sure to bring cash, because that's the only payment the restaurant accepts.

Friedhelms Bavarian Restaurant
905 W. Main Street
Fredericksburg, TX 78624
(830) 997-6300

From the atmosphere to the tiny morsels left on your plate, Friedhelms Bavarian Restaurant is BBonline's pick for authentic German cuisine. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11:00 am until 10:00 pm. A large variety of German food is served and there is a notable selection of German beer. Meals such as pepper schnitzel and German soup will easily satisfy your hunger, and send you back to your Fredericksburg Bed and Breakfast with a full stomach. The lighting is slightly dim and prices are high. Each meal will cost at least $20. Service is friendly, but it takes longer than average to receive your food. If you're not in a rush and want to enjoy a quite evening of delicious German food, then Friedhelms Bavarian Restaurant is a wonderful dining option. There is even a bed and breakfast next to the restaurant, if you wish to experience the full German influence of Fredericksbrug.

Rathskeller
260 East Main Street
Fredericksburg, TX 78624
(830) 990-5858
http://www.rathskellerrestaurant.com/

Rathskeller is a scrumptious German restaurant hidden in the basement of the Historic Keidel Hospital Building. It may be a bit difficult to find because the sign is not very noticeable. The atmosphere is certainly less cozy than your Fredericksburg Inn, but the stone walls and wooden tables give the feeling of dining in Germany a hundred years ago. Don't let the harsh appearance fool you or scare you away. The bona fide German food is a true delight and the staff is lively without being too overwhelming. BBonline.com recommends that you bring a coat to keep warm, since the restaurant is essentially a basement. Rathskeller is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Although Rathskeller is closed on Tuesdays, it remains open Wednesday through Monday from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm and then from 5:00 pm until 9:00 pm. There's live music on Friday and Saturday nights and to-go orders are welcomed if you wish to enjoy the food without the crowd.

Der Lindenbaum

Fredericksburg, TX 78624
(830) 997-9126
