Demijohn Bend

Demijohn Bend, eighteen miles northwest of New Braunfels in northern Comal County, was a German farming and ranching community that was settled in the 1850s by the Pantermuehl and Baetge families. The name derived from a demijohn-shaped bend in the Guadalupe River that formed a 400-acre peninsula that was nearly encircled by the stream. Much of the scenic bend has been submerged since Canyon Lake was filled in the mid-1960s.
