Blumenau

Playgrounds · Specialty Museums · Government Buildings
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. In the build up to your vacation in Blumenau, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Brazil trip itinerary maker website.
