  • A place fascinating, manage to put you in the history of them first settlers German that came to frutillar, how lived and how some until you taught to read to them Chilean illiterate of the time. It's great to be able to see how were houses, furniture and clothing of the time, I recommend it fully for those who like to learn about other cultures and other times. The value of the entry does not remember, approx. 2 or 3 thousand Chilean pesos. With some two hours it runs quiet

  • Beautiful and well decorated. The only detail was that in some parts they don't put the name of it is, and if they do, do not explain what they served.

  • Interesting to visit this German House and some of its agricultural tools, which were essential for the development of the region. The input costs a little less than $4 per person.
