  • It certainly was the location that most learned about the history of Petrópolis, not only on the lives of the settlers who helped build the city, as well as the current need to revive and understand an important chapter on Brazil. Located just outside the historic centre, the Museum rescues habits and customs of the German settlers, through household and work, securities, in addition to photographs, paintings and objects of personal use. With wide knowledge Ana Luiza led very well visit is remarkable passion and your proud to tell the story of your city. Nominate a visit!

  • Very well preserved, the House made of wattle, mud, straw, shows the reality of the settlers who came at the time of construction of Petrópolis. Many utensils and clothing worn at the time, fine rustic and organized. Worth checking out and paying a visit to Settler's House!

  • Loved it! Ana Luiza tab is a sweet, super nice and explained in detail. The place is charming and worth knowing more about the Germans who immigrated to Petrópolis.

  • The House is very nice!!! When I looked at the building from outside pictured something, but when I walked in I was surprised how it was different than I had imagined. I really liked the person who welcomed us and the wealth of details you gave us to introduce us to the House. I can't remember the name of the official, but felt like a Museum of Europe, with such education and professionalism.

Where to stay in Petropolis

Unfortunately, no matter how much you're willing to spend, your accommodations in Petropolis won't be quite as luxurious as Emperor Pedro's former palace. Nevertheless, you can choose from a range of delightful guesthouses and boutique hotels during your Petropolis vacation, many of which are housed in well-preserved colonial buildings and offer spacious gardens to enjoy. The city's old center, with close proximity to the palace and the striking cathedral, remains the most popular neighborhood among tourists. However, you can also find a range of places to stay in the southwestern neighborhood of Quitandinha, which contains a scenic lake of the same name.
