German Footprint & Nazi presence - Walking Tour in Bariloche

82 reviews
The experience of discovering how german speaking immigration shaped the town look & feel, the architecture, and the mountain sports culture since the begining of times. This set the basis for the arrival of the last wave of immigation including the nazi presence (Erik Priebke). This also triggered some stories about Hitler living in the area. We wil explore evidence of all the above.

We visited Colonia Suiza with the intention of doing a walk from there. The walk was very pleasant up through the forest up to the river. The Colonia Suiza was interesting to see but has many tacky tourist shops and seems to live from reputation gone past.

Apparently this place started life as a colony of early Swiss settlers (hence the name) and the style of the buildings certainly reflects that. It’s a very quirky settlement but, sadly, it has become little more than a tourist trap full of gift stores and cafes. We spent 10 minutes walking around and then left. If you are making the trip then be aware that the last 3 km are on a dirt track.

This little quaint place is like a theme park mixing German and Hippie culture. Very informal and nested peacefully between trees there are lots of local handicrafts and snacks, eg. Waffles

Nice place to stop to get some food in a fun environment. Lots of stalls selling different types of food and artisan products. Touristy, but fun.
