Description: The tour begins with a visit of Llanquihue, a city founded by Germans located on the shores of the lake of the same name. Continuing along the route one reaches Frutillar Alto where the German Colonial Museum may be visited, featuring an exhibition of German colonization in the area and its key buildings: Llavería, Casa del Molino and Molino de Agua, Casona del Campo, Casa de Herrero and Taller de Herrería and Forja y su Campanario, without leaving out the gardens and parks where century-old native tree species can be found, as well as the majestic views of the Osorno and Puntiagudo volcanos.  The tour continues to Puerto Octay, located on the northern margin of Llanquihue Lake. This area is known for its diverse architecture that reflects the colonization process of families who came over from Germany, with houses that mix the European building traditions of the 19th century with local methods, mainly of Chiloe small builders.  There will be free time to walk around before returning to the hotel.
