Nova Petropolis

3.8

Garden of Serra Gaucha

A trip to Nova Petropolis offers visitors the chance to enjoy a slice of Germanic charm among the hills of southern Brazil. Home to about 20,000 residents, many of whom have German heritage and continue to speak a dialect of German, the quaint town looks more akin to Bavaria than Brazil, with neatly manicured flower gardens and alpine-style peaked roofs aplenty. Aside from a thriving tourism industry, the town has economic roots in dairy farming, wool, and artisan trades such as shoemaking. With our international travel planner, Brazil vacations can be built around trips to Nova Petropolis and other destinations in Brazil.

Where to stay in Nova Petropolis

During your Nova Petropolis vacation, you can immerse yourself in the town's history by staying in one of the many hotels and inns housed in original German-style alpine buildings. The town also offers a selection of spacious villas, typically with large gardens. Most accommodations line the town's main road, Avenida 15 de Novembro, which snakes its way through the length of Novo Petropolis. If you want to stay somewhere a bit quieter, follow the road a few minutes out of town--you'll find several stand-alone accommodations where you can experience the surrounding scenery in peace.
