  • An interesting place to explore and learn as they lived the first German settlers in our country. An example of effort and determination.

  • The Museum concept perhaps assume some locked in 4 walls... well this is completely different, a journey to the Hill is where there are different types of dwellings, which have the typical objects of that time. Recommended

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.
