Blumenau

3.9

Tropical Germany

Founded in 1850 by a dozen German immigrants, Blumenau remains a place apart from the rest of Brazil largely thanks to its distinct European culture, architecture, and cuisine. Most tourists vacation in Blumenau during the city's Octoberfest, one of the world's largest beer celebrations, attracting nearly a million visitors from distant corners of the globe. Despite this event's popularity, the locals remain proudest of their town's architectural gems, so make sure your Blumenau itinerary includes stops at notable landmarks like the city hall, central public square, roofed bridge, and main cathedral. The starting point of many Blumenau tours, the city's "German Village" is a street lined with Bavarian-style timber structures housing modern souvenir shops and cozy restaurants. Blumenau is in State of Santa Catarina (SC). Make Blumenau central to your Brazil travel plans using our Brazil trip tool .
