5 Best and Fun Things To Do In Schulenburg, Texas

Best known for its German and Czech heritage, this small town in eastern central Texas is full of hidden gems.

However, the main attractions here are undoubtedly the world-famous Painted Churches, which are absolutely worth a visit.

When German and Czech immigrants arrived here in the 1800s, they didn’t have the resources to recreate the magnificent cathedrals they left behind in Europe.

So, instead, they used paint to emulate some of the architectural details of the new churches, such as marble columns, gold metal surfaces, and vaulted ceilings. The buildings also feature breathtaking murals and highly-detailed statues and relief sculptures.

Another must-see while in Schulenburg is its main museum, where you can learn all about local history and see hundreds of items from the town’s past.

If you’re looking for something a little different, head to the Texas Polka Museum, which houses all sorts of items and memorabilia honoring the legacy of polka music in Texas.
