La Colonia Tovar

Germany of the Caribbean

A little slice of 19th-century Deutschland in Venezuela, La Colonia Tovar presents visitors with a cultural paradox of Old World alpine Germany set by the Caribbean Sea. This, however, is no theme park--settlers from the Duchy of Baden in present-day Germany founded the town in 1843, building characteristic German alpine homes and speaking the Alemannic dialect of German, which remains distinct from any form of German spoken in Europe. Take a break from La Colonia Tovar sightseeing by dining on German sausage and strudel in one of the restaurants around town. Typical German celebrations, including Oktoberfest, also take place throughout the year. La Colonia Tovar is in Central Region.
