Luckenbach Things to Do: 8 reviews and 12 photos


This combination general store, post office, and bar was opened for business in 1849 by Minna Engel, daughter of an itinerant German preacher. The community was later named after her husband, Carl Luckenbach. The town's history is colorfully told at its web site (see below), so I encourage you to check that out.

There is a lot of merchandise packed into this little store, but I wasn't certain what was for show and what was for sale.

Address: 412 Luckenbach Loop
Directions: Don't count on there being signs pointing to Luckenbach. I understand that people steal them as fast as they can put them up. Off of US 290, east of Fredericksburg, go south on Road 1376 til you get to Luckenbach Loop. Just follow the Loop.
