Gramado: A little piece of Germany in Brazil.

Updated: Jan 22, 2021

This mountain resort town in the southernmost state of Brazil captivates tourists year round through its European-inspired architecture, charming chalets, phenomenal gastronomy, outstanding friendliness, and its natural beauty, to say the least.


I am not the kind of person who enjoys doing the same thing repeatedly. However, Gramado and the towns that are a part of the Serra Gaucha mountain region at Rio Grande do Sul never get old. As a Gaucha myself (a female who was born in the Rio Grande do Sul state), I've been visiting Gramado since I was a child. Mostly as a one-day trip, since it's about a two hour drive from Porto Alegre, the capital city's metropolitan area, where I grew up.
