    A great place to wander, understand and know the history of German immigration in the region and in the city of Novo Hamburgo. Are several houses, centuries-old churches that form an historic climate of immigration. In the neighborhood there are museums with a collection rich of the formation of the German colony in the city which is still little known and/or visited seen your wealth of history and culture.

Where to stay in Novo Hamburgo

Accommodations in the city are much more "novo" than they are "Hamburgo," so those hoping to stay in a period timber-clad German pension will be disappointed. Novo Hamburgo's accommodations tend to cluster in the Centro district, either side of the main east-west thoroughfare. Essentially, hotels are the only lodgings in the city; they range from the simple and casual to more upmarket, business-traveler oriented fare. Despite the lack of variety in form, you'll find a decent choice when it comes to character and cost.
