Full description
Depart from Balneário Camboriú and set off for the "European Valley" known for its beautiful landscapes and unique Germanic culture. Start the tour by visiting the small town of Ilhota, considered to be the manufacturing center for underwear and bathing suits. Continue on to Blumenau, and visit the Beer Museum, the City Hall building, and Vila Germânica Park that hosts major events such as Oktoberfest - the second most important beer festival in the world, after only Munich in Germany, and the 2nd largest Brazilian event after Carnival. Stop off in the Vila Germânica Park to explore the scenery, and have an optional lunch (not included in the price). After this, proceed to Pomerode, the most Germanic city of Brazil where approximately 90% of its population speaks the German language. Find out about how the city colonizers came from Pomerania in northern Germany, and their culture is alive even today. Explore the main sights and take an interesting walk along the Route of the Enxaimel where you will see typical houses that hold curious stories about the Nazi period. Enjoy free time to stroll around the city, shop for chocolates, and savor a delicious German pie (not included) in a traditional confectionery shop. At the end of the afternoon, return to Balneário Camboriú.

Unfortunately it rained a lot and this hindered our tour, we were unable to walk through the cities. In addition, some attractions were closed because of Covid-19, such as the beer museum and some stores in Blumenau and Pomerode. But it was still worth visiting Blumenau and a little bit of German culture in Brazil.
