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 path and nature. You can see many different birds if you are lucky (I saw a toucan) and even smaller animals. My advice would be to have some repellent at hand because there are loads of mosquitoes.
Love this trail! There’s a story book along the way! Very interesting !
The forest has a gazebo that able to see a bealtiful view the Curitiba's downtown.
Quite cute with the story of Hänsel und Gretel and the witch's house a woman dressed like a witch reads to children.
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.
