As everything in Gramado, this lake is another beautiful attraction. We had a wonderful time there, took hundreds of beautiful pictures, had a couple of drinks and enjoyed every minute we've spent there.

I have good memories of this place! The story is that a German rich man that immigrated to that area used to feel homesick of his town in Germany. As he had money he decided to build this lake. Which is a replica of the Black Lake at the Bavaria area in Germany. To make the deep bottom of the... More

The Black Lake is a place where you van fully relax and enjoy the scenary. The ride on the lake is smooth and chilling, and it was probably one of the most peaceful moments I had during the trip. Totally worth the while!

We could take very beautiful pictures of the lake and the surroundings. Should I live in Gramado and this would be the perfect place for a walk every sunny morning.

A secluded lake area with facility to walk at leisure around the lake. Unfortunate that there are the rather ugly pedal boats (swans) which rather detract from the natural beauty. A great place though to spend a little peaceful time.

A pretty place to visit. It has a cafe/restaurant and peddle boat rides. My daughter really enjoyed the ride on the swan peddle boat. It is a little far out from the city centre, but worth a visit.

The Black lake is a beautiful lake in this little and cozy city of gram ado, in Southern Brazil. Adjust your expectations because it is a small lake if compared with others in Brazil, US or Switzerland, for instance. But it has a charm that requires a visit if you are in Gramado. It is one of the attractions of... More

Urban park in a nice neighborhood, with no costs on its entrance. There is a path around the lake with exuberant nature. Romantic scenery place that is a must go in Gramado. 1 hour visit is enough.
