The Bosque Alemão of Curitiba!!

And I bring you overt to Brazil, that is , which lucky enough to have been visiting since 1992, and as latest as 2018; even had the opportunity to lived in Curitiba on a job assignment back in 2008. I lived in Curitiba and it was superb! I have several posts on the city, and feels this park needs a post of its own, Let me tell you a bit on the Bosque Alemão or German Forest of Curitiba!!! in the State of Paranà, Brazil!

The German forest or Bosque Alemão formerly the Schaffer family estate with 38000 m² of area, was inaugurated in 1996 in the city of Curitiba. It is located in the neighborhood Vista Alegre (Jardim Schaffer) and is formed by dense native forest. It was created to honor the culture and traditions that German immigrants brought to Curitiba from 1833.[ The Neighborhood Vista Alegre (Jardim Schaffer), houses the entire area of the grove that is located between the streets Franz Schubert, Niccolò Paganinie and Francisco Schaffer.

Oratorio Bach, a music hall. It is one of the main attractions of the German Forest and is installed in the replica of an old church. The salon was inaugurated on April 13, 1996.  Some of the things to see here are, the Tower of the Philosophers, with a gazebo from where one sees much of the preserved area. The João and Maria Trail, where children have the opportunity to experience one of the most beautiful children’s tales. The Enchanted House, with a children’s library, and where is made the time of the tale for kids, with witches and fairies. The Germanic Culture Square, where the cultural richness of German immigrants is showcase. The Forest of native Atlantic trees is preserved with clear water springs.

The view from the top of the lookout is impressive. The German Forest offers one of the best spots in Curitiba to observe the city from the Serra do Mar. The green space has exuberant nature and several spaces that pay homage and reference to the Germanic peoples. Praça da Poesia Germanica is a reproduction of the facade of Casa Mila. This was an early 20C Germanic building that was originally in the center of town. The Gradil in the central upper opening of the portal is original from the old building.

I had many opportunities to see my co workers here on weekends for further chats and got to know their families in a friendly typical Brazilian way. The Bosque Alemão was it on weekends, just great memories forever always in my heart. I hope one day to be back to Curitiba. Hope you enjoy the post as I.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
