    Begin with a scenic drive through fertile, lush farmland to the town of Blumenau for an up-close look into the unique ambience and significance of German culture common throughout the region.

    German heritage has played a significant role in Southern Brazil's history since the 1850s. Upon arrival at the outskirts of Blumenau, visit the Colonial Family Museum for a glimpse into the travails of the city's first early settlers. Learn about Blumenau's founder, Dr. Otto Blumenau, whose task it was to prepare the settling of the German immigrants along the banks of the Itajaí-Açu River, and admire the museum's traditional alpine design.

    Although early Blumenau was initially intended to develop as a farming community, the arrival of craftsmen introduced textile production, metallurgy and crystal manufacturing into the economy. Today, Brazil is known for its quartz-rich crystal that is produced from the sand of Minas Gerais State, that become delicate works of art at the crystal factory of Blumenau.

    Next, your drive will proceed to the Bavarian Biergarten Pavilion, site of Blumenau's annual Oktoberfest which is the second largest outside of Germany.

    Following your visit, your lunch will be served at Plaza Hering hotel.

    Afterwards, you will have free time in downtown Blumenau before making the return drive to the pier in Porto Belo.

    Please note: The drive to Blumenau is approximately 90-minutes and while the tour includes some moderate walking at the stops, it is mainly a panoramic coach tour of the city's main points of interest. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability and may make arrangements with the guide to not participate in some of the walking portions of the tour. Lightweight clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. It is further advised that the quality of the guides and transportation in this destination may not be of the same quality that is found in other more progressive areas. While the city of Blumenau with its German heritage has some interesting features that world-travelers will find of interest, the tourist infrastructure is limited and may not appeal to all of our guests.
