On first appesrances this is just a nice looking old building but if you walk around and se the water feature steps and the wooden walkway you get great views over some of Curitiba and all the green spaces and trees. Nice little picture stop and in a quiet area.

If you start from the bottom (the gate) towards the top (Bach's oratorium), you can read (or based on pictures imagine, since it is in portugese) a Hensen and Gretzen story. It is well worth taking a short walk through the forest (that looks deep indeed) also for the adults and at the end enjoying a view from the tower.... More

A very pretty park where you walk around a small forest with small posters telling you the story of Hansel and Gretel. It's also got a nice portal and a beautiful view of the city. I haven't been there in a while, but there used to be a very nice place to eat cakes and pies on the upper part... More

It's the most beautiful park on Curitiba, you should do the "trilha" of Hansel and Gretel, you will find loads of nice places there, surrounded by green areas

Bring kids to listen to the witch stories during weekends. They love it. After that you can eat and rest a little bit upstairs. You can easily arrive with the tourism bus.

Beautiful garden. Story teller's house is popular weekend attraction with students from the local Performing Arts School putting on performances for children - unfortunately only in Portuguese. Best honey bread and pie in town at the snack bar.

Nothing interesting there, it's a cute place in a upscale neighborhood but not worth your time. It's just a path in the woods.
