Painted Churches Tour

Reviewed By trymahjong - Surf Side, Texas

We did self guided tour after obtaining map from Schulenburg Chamber of Commerce.
Each church was remarkable, very serene with a thousand whispers of the love and care put into the stenciling and free handed painting.
There is very little PR (signage?) for these churches. It feels as if you are a on a pilgrimage. The tall steeples rise up over the trees and gently rolling hills, the venues are peaceful with the sounds of birds and cicadas. It was wonderful.

We didn't give enough notification for a guided tour but the map and google obliged us with a good amount of information.
We highly recommend this tour

St. Mary's Church High Hill

Reviewed By trymahjong - Surf Side, Texas

Yes we walked to each outdoor shrine/grotto and read the markers. Each was lovely, we saw cardinals, mockingbirds and robins among the huge oak trees. We read the outdoor milestones markers and hope a labyrinth might be a way to commemorate the next one.

The Weimary

Reviewed By Wine_of_the_Moment - Georgetown, Texas

Each winery we’ve visited has had its own unique story to it. At The Weimary, you get that plus a unique story to each bottle. That is one of the added unique characteristics that you’ll love about this place. Each bottle label features old black and white photos of many of the owner’s different family members. However, along with tasting each bottle and enjoying what's inside, you need to also savor each label unique character and story, as there are some really interesting ones to be found here. That is something special that owners Sue and Patrick Gibson have added to this place, setting it apart from the others. If you happen to have the pleasure of meeting Sue on your visit, she will definitely tell you a lot of each family photo and the story behind it with a great zest for life and humor! The stories are quite interesting and will keep you as a customer engaged and interested. Patrick can be found talking, too, but mostly to the vines. They planted their 4 acres of vines back in 2009 planting Blanc du Bois and Lenoir on what was once the old Grahmann Farms property and opened their tasting room and winery on Memorial weekend in 2012. They are currently on their 6th leaf. Braman Winery and Haak have been helping them out with their wine production as well as facilities in New Mexico. Besides the story telling on the wine labels, you’ll also enjoy a good selection of good wine from sweet to medium to dry. It's best to have your tasting partner around so both of you can divide and conquer their extensive list. They've done a nice job with the Blanc du Bois wines (Fred & Frieda), but you'll be in for a treat with the Sweet Cheeks version. It actually has about 8% Malbec blended with it to kick it up a notch. The Sunshine & Victory blends (white & red) have some Moscato blended in to make for a great chilled lemonade alternative summer time treat. If you like reds, they have some good red blends with the Wrestler Red and Sidekick. The Broken Bow is a actually a nice light version of Cabernet Sauvignon that'll surprise some white wine drinkers with its good taste and aroma. For Merlot drinkers, do try The Competition. The bold red wine drinkers should appreciate Strong Arm Jack which has been aged 18 months and is bold, earthy, and everything else you love in a good red wine. Coming attractions planned for future releases are a Pinot Grigio and a Gewurztraminer, which we believe will not disappoint. The Weimary has a great outdoor area for just about any event, lots of open spaces, and the ideal spot for a spectacular sunset and lovely countryside views. This is a cool place to visit next time you’re out this way so do check it out!

Piano Bridge

Reviewed By Robert J - Lake Jackson, United States

This bridge was build by the King Bridge Company of Cleveland, OH in 1885. It is a piano-wire truss bridge. If you are interested in the architecture of bridges, this one is on a pretty country lane and worth the detour to see.

A great experience with wonderful pecan tasting. A great selection of goods and presents. Wonderful display of Christmas garlands and wreaths. I ordered one to be sent to me in the U.K. and they couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.

St. Mary's Church of the Assumption

Reviewed By capitollover - Austin, Texas

Everything in this church sparkles since it has been newly restored. You can even still smell the paint. I was not very impressed with this church back in 1997 when I took the painted churches tour, but I am absolutely blown away now.

It is located west of Schulenburg on FM 1295 just off (north of) of Hwy 90.

Unlike many of the other painted churches, which are wooden on the outside, this one is stone. It really is a beautiful building, inside and out.

This church is accessible if you do not purchase a tour.

St. John the Baptist Catholic Church

Reviewed By capitollover - Austin, Texas

This church, aka "The Pink Church", was established in 1890, but the church was destroyed in a 1902 hurricane. A second church on the site burned. Today's church was built in 1911.

There is no fee to just go and visit by yourself, but a guided tour gives you the history of the area and the people who settled it. I took a tour of the painted churches back in 1997, and the cost was well worth the experience. Today's visit was without a guide, but I did make a donation to their "restoration fund" for the privilege of enjoying the beauty of the interior of this church.

There are public restrooms in a separate building on the church grounds. The women's has 2 stalls, so you don't have to wait outside if you see someone enter.

Stanzel Model Aircraft Museum

Aircraft model museum of Victor Stanzel Company models.

Reviewed By GFPretired - Burleson, TX

What a fun place. We had our four-year old grandson with us and he enjoyed it, too. The two ladies who were manning the front desk were a joy to visit with. All of the exhibits were done in a first-class manner and all of the interactive exhibits actually worked - ALL of them. Was very interesting that they had a VERY few items left from the factory's inventory. One each of their most popular model airplane kits and some battery-powered flying toys. Even though I appreciated the Painted Churches, this little museum was the highlight of our trip for me.

Majek Vineyard & Winery

Reviewed By AustinTravelMan - Lakeway, Texas

Lynne and Randy Majek are simply wonderful, inviting, friendly, caring people. That spirit pervades this little vineyard and winery. BUT, don't just come for any-old tasting. Plan ahead, bring 8 friends and have them schedule a sumptuous multi-course lunch with a different wine paired perfectly with each course. THAT is how to properly get the feel of a good wine. The winery is very new, but their wines have already been well reviewed.

Sengelmann Hall

Reviewed By GC50MH56 - Hallettsville, Texas

We'd been going here a long time. The past few times, service has been very spotty, even to the point of nonexistant. When we tried to order food, we were informed that because a big group had taken them by surprise and shown up, they wouldn't serve us. This has happened one other time. Another time, we were told that a hamburger was the only thing we could order. This is too bad as we had such high hopes for this place. Why the owner would want to run off regular customers in favor of a group that had just walked in, and will probably never go again is beyond us. Do yourself a favor and go to Frank's or The Garden Market instead.
