    around 10am, everybody was yearning for a cupper and some rolls..or just a cafezinho..small black, sweet and strong!! it was always a 'local' meeting place, people from the office,the shops and like us, coming from the countryside...it was great!!

    Favorite Dish: Breakfast..was a real hungabuster!

    Rio Grande do Sul is as big as the State of Texas, has a good roadsystem but Public Transport is sparse always was. renting a car might not be cheap but has its merrits to go where ever you thinkis an interesting place. like Teutonia and the Lago Harmonia....Lake. around 100km from Novo Hamburgo.

Novo Hamburgo Local Customs

  • Fundacao Ernesto Frederico Scheffel

    I like this museum because it has a large variety of exhibits. Frederick Scheffel is a good painter. It could be nice a Coffee shop close the museum and also a souvenir shop. I didn't find any postcard from the city. The museum guide was very attentive. It costs € 2 to get in the museum. I recommend to take a look around the museum. There are many...

    unsealed in some parts makes driving now and then a bit tricky on the countryside roads
    and it can get quite a bit chilly in July&Aug.
    I would recommend some wet weather gear as well as warm clothing
    in this part of the Vale dos Sinos its 800m above sea level

    Countryside delight or curse

  • see some Immigrant beginnings

    colonial beginnings displayed at the Museum in Dois Irmaos, 12km from Novo Hamburgo, worth a look. like all the New World Countries, the Beginnings where hart and tough. Forest and Bush had to be cleared to make fertil fields for the crobs to be planted. Roads had to be build, the elements battled. how they did that all without the heavy Maschinery...
