Black Lake, Gramado

4.6
A small town’s big surprise, Black Lake was created in 1953 in an area once covered by a lush forest, which was destroyed by a devastating fire in the 1940s. Shaped like the letter U, the lake was surrounded by pine saplings, imported all the way from Germany’s famous Black Forest (hence, the lake’s name). Today, this large artificial pond sits in the middle of a dense pine forest, with its shores naturally bordered by blue hydrangeas. Take a leisurely walk around the lake to enjoy the scenery and photograph the famous pines, or spend a few hours jogging or cycling on the surrounding paths. Drop by the lake’s boathouse to rent a boat, and take a little time to paddle on the calm water.

  • This is a normal and artificial lake with the well known Swan-shaped pedal boats and some in the form of a pirate ship. The name "Black Lake" has no explanation available, but with ima quickly search to find the reason. The paddleboats has value of 50 reais for 20 minutes, enough time to circulate the Lake more than once. There are restaurant and souvenir shops, with fairly simple handicrafts. Best tours to prioritize.

  • We live in São Leopoldo, and almost every time we go the Lawn we stopped at the Black Lake to walk, sit down and have a mate. Paddle boat rides are traditional and there is a control drive in the speaking time, which is good. There are great options for snacks and souvenirs in the neighborhood and public toilets free of charge too.
