Itinerary

After hotel pick ups, the tour begins with a visit to the historic downtown of the Brazilian capital of beer. As attractions of this tour, the Biergarten where the city started. In the surroundings are Duque de Caxias Avenue, also known as Palmeiras Avenue. It was the first planned street in the colony. The first imperial palms, brought from Rio de Janeiro, were planted in the center of the avenue, in 1876; the Colonial Family Museum (optional visit), a cultural space that preserves a collection of 6,200 pieces. They belong to the founder of Blumenau, colonizers and their families. Historical and well-maintained furniture, clothing, accessories, household items and machinery. At the back of the Museum complex is the forest garden, where you can still find trees planted by the city's founder and the Cemetery of the Cats. You will get to know this Cemetery made by the great-niece of the city's founder Hermann Bruno Otto Blumenau (1819-99), Edith. She had great affection for cats. When they died, the cats were buried with the right to funeral procession. Over time, the place became a tourist attraction and the subject of national news programs.

Right after that, a panoramic tour with a 15-minute stop for photographs is made at the City Hall. Afterwards, a visit is made to Vila Germânica Park, stage of Oktoberfest and major events in Blumenau. In this place there are shops selling souvenirs from the party and other Germanic themes, as well as bars and cafeteria. Tourists will have enough time to explore the village. During the tour there will be free time for shopping for knitwear, liquors and handicrafts. Lunch, not included, is suggested at Churrascaria Ataliba.
