Frutillar Things to Do

  • Visiting the German Pioneer Museum

    Following the revolution in Germany in 1848 and the efforts of the Chilean Government to develop the country, many German families were recruited to come settle the land around the Lake Llanquihue. There were several reasons for the governmemnt's eagerness to settle the land. On the one hand, there was an ongoing struggle with some indigenous...

  • Views of Volcan Osorno

    On a clear day the view of Volcan Osorno from Frutillar is stunning. The volcano lies on the other side of the lake and dominates the view. For most of our time in Frutillar, clouds blocked this view so we had to imagine what it looked like. On the morning we left, we went for a quick walk before breakfast and as we were returning the cloud cleared...

  • The beach

    There's a popular beach on the shores of Lago Llanquihue, with a small area of the lake sectioned off for swimming. Frutillar was quite busy when we visited, despite the cloudy weather. And the weather didn't deter the swimmers either. We spent a goo dhour on the beach, which is composed of fine, volcanic sand. I tried going in the water but it was...

Frutillar Restaurants

  • Perfect Place to have Onces!

    At one of the many Salons de Te where you can take afternoon tea. Salon de Te Treyen is highly recommended for the lovely hot chocolate and homemade kuchen (cake). You can sit by the bay windows where you can look out onto the lake and get a glimpse of Volcan Osorno. I had hot chocolate and home made chocolate cake. Both were delicious especially...

  • Guten Appetit

    Giving its scenic location, it's not surprising that most restaurants in Frutillar are overpriced. We went for dinner in Guten Appetit (many of the people and restaurants in Frutillar are German), where the only thing that didn't break our budget were churrascos and hamburgers - hence Ruth ahd one and I had the other. The food was fine and the...

  • Cafe & Kuchen

    Many people living in Frutillar are descended from German immigrants, meaning there's a strong Germanic flavour to the food here. Nearly all the cafes and restaurants along the lake shore offer Cafe & Kuchen. The cafe is poor but the cakes are delicious. We stopped at a tiny place near our hotel, which offered nothing else but cake - 8 varieties of...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Don't miss the delicious sweet . It's sold everywhere in Frutillar. It' s a sort of cake made of light, refreshing fruit cream . I couldn't resist having two at a time. It's a typical German recipe. It goes perfectly with your coffee !!!

    I loved it! Photo by Angela Drandaki
