  • Beautiful Museum in a quite zone vegetation and with typical constructions. Too bad we have a not-so-wide visitation.

  • Since one arrives, he meets trails that take you from mills, houses, Smithies, and all kinds of German colonial buildings. Even with all the utensils and well-maintained equipment within them. You have to go wanting to walk.

Where to stay in Frutillar

Budget options remain relatively scarce in Frutillar, especially during one of the city's music festivals, which bring visitors from distant corners of the country. Lakeshore cabins appeal mostly to well-heeled travelers and offer spacious rooms with free Wi-Fi, as well as a range of guided activities like rafting and horseback riding. If you're traveling alone or don't wish to splurge on a cabin, look for good-value hostels and backpacker-friendly guesthouses.
