Christmas time of course is the better time to go. The place has a machine to make fake snow. It is fun! Specially if you get to know the real snow. It turns to be a soap rain! You are going to find Santa's house built in details inside and outside. Also, follow the path to see the local animals.... More

I really enjoyed Aldeia do Papai Noel, and my 1.3 year son did it too. The place is big, well organized and I liked a lot that the attractions are in-line organised, so it's easy to follow a single route and see it all - but also possible to wander around freely. I visited it on a Monday, and my... More

Dont go. Dont tell your 3 year old daughter that she will see Santa Claus when she goes to Gramado, because then you will have to take her. Ok, for sure the day that went it was a little foggy - but what we could see because of the weather was not worth seeing. Santa was the biggest let down.... More

Parque Knorr has ever been a beautiful park in the mountains of Rio Grande do Sul State, the so- called "Serra Gaúcha". However, I found the "Aldeia do Papai Noel" (in English, the "Village of Santa Claus") completely disappointing and a total waste of time. Adults can easily reach it by walking from downtown and will find it lacking of... More

The Santa Claus Village is very well organized, with fake snow in a part of it and beautiful articulated toys. Also, you have a very good landscape of the Quilombo Valley from there. Negative points are the high price of the entrance and the monorail tickets.

I went last week with my 1 year old and my 6 year old. Outside temperature was 4oC. None of the places has heaters. We waited 25 minutes for the carrousel driver to come and he has never arrived. May be because this was free attraction. Besides you pay to enter, inside the park, monorails is paid apart, little train... More

I imagined a place full of joy, but everything is low maintained , the santa Claus is sad, and everything is done to take your money, because costs a lot more than in the other places...

it is overpriced, and after you're in, they make you pay more for some attractions (monorail and the small train). The decorations look dull and way too banal.

My son absolutely loves this place. We have been here on 3 occasions already, and will probably come back when returning to Gramado. Great little park for small children, and much better value than some of the Christmas' equivalent here in England! My only advice would be to leave your buggy with the lady at the shop. The park is... More

The tickets are very expensive for what we can see. And, inside, you have to pay more for some rides.
