Santa Claus is coming to town


By Aleyna


Gramado is a small city in the hills, famous for snow during the winter. Brazilians from all northern states come to visit the city during the winter to see the snow. Being a city of Germanic characteristics, which presents a very characteristic architecture, eventually became a reference for the Christmas period. In the last 30 to 40 years the period of Christmas became a landmark for tourism and the city increasingly strives in Christmas decorations.
The park was founded by Oscar Knor Knorr in the 40s, where he built his house in Germanic style, now known as the Santa Claus Village, home to many attractions including the house, declared a historical heritage and now known as Children and joy "the home of Santa Claus. "

Lets take the train and go visit Santa :)

Welcome to Santa’s land…

The park is huge and these pine trees were planted more than 60 years ago, now you can see the nice draws of their roots on the ground.

Here is Santa’s house! You can see the Kilombo valley from its porch.

The dinner room.

The kitchen, the goodies and the wine cellar… of course!

The music room and the toys room.

Way too many letters to take care of…

Well, after all the work Santa deserves a relaxing bath and a good night sleep.

Beacause tomorrow is another day and the breakfast table downstairs is yumie and ready!

Lets sneak outside and see what more we can find

Lots of different toy houses were built along the woods paths

Oh even Rudolph is around

If you want to come and visit, a lovely hotel is just the other side of the road, and also has a view to the valley

I hope you will enjoy the trip as I did.

Thank you TT for your always kind comments :)

Thanks Motinot, Christmas is my preferred season in the year. This Santa's house and land is the happiness of the children, and adults, mainly when the fog covers the hills, they feel like visiting the north pole :)

Thank you all for the nice comments. I'm glad you liked it.

You are right Stickitoffee, each one has a different decoration, you should see the briight on the girls eyes :)

Thanks Drc726, by this time on the year, parents bring the children to enjoy Santa :)

It is a real ride for someone who is afraid of highs like me, although it runs just a few meters from the ground.. lol, bu the view is lovely, the only spot where you can enjoy the hills and valleys... sorry I didnt take any picture was too busy enjoying it and trying to look forward, not down ... :)

Thanks Hywell, the house is lovely, it was Mr. Oscar Knorr's family house, and most of the porcelaine (china?), the beer cups, the stove and fridge are originals I think.
