Come show your strength in the Soph-Fit Games!

Hermann Seele is given credit for organizing the Turnverein in New Braunfels in 1855 for the purpose of promoting gymnastics, but it was more than that. They sponsored entertaining programs, literary events, and formed a fire-fighting brigade. Another purpose was to improve and promote intellectual and moral culture of youth.

In the Sophienburg Museum, pictures and belts are part of the Vereine exhibit. Read more here.




$500 worth of prizes went out to the hardy souls who braved the cold wet weather for the 2015 Soph-Fit Games.

Winners were:

Male: Alex Pinillo

Female: Annette Portell
