A park built to honor the German immigrants who moved to the city of Curitiba in the early 19th century; Bosque Alemao literally means German woods. Well-maintained trails of Hansel and Gratel (the famous tale of Grimm Brothers) are the main highlight of the park and the gingerbread and candy house is a magnet for kids!
The park was opened in 1996 and also houses a memorial to the German immigrants who contributed to the culture of Curitiba. Spread over 38,000 square meters, the park is set up on a farm owned by the Schaffer family.

Beautiful view from the city and a nice walk in the native woods. A nice place to relax. The pastry shop there has some excellent German pies and cakes.
When you get to Curitiba and you have family (children 7-13) like us... you will love this place. Well care, clean, easy access, no entrance fee and good place for family time.
Spectacular piece of nature with cuts of architecture. Unmissable for anyone who loves nature.
one of the most recognized parks in the city, worth a visit
Cute Hansel and Gretel story along the trail. It's cool when it's hot outside. The nature is beautiful with Lily pads and a green forest. Nice view from the top with a cute "cafe" to get Ginger bread. No espresso.
