Fodor's Review

The 8-acre German Woods, a park honoring German immigration, is on a hill in the Jardim Schaffer neighborhood. On its upper side is the Bach Oratorium, a small concert hall that looks like a chapel; it's the site of classical music performances. The park also has a viewpoint with a balcony overlooking downtown, a library with children's books, and a path through the woods called Hans and Gretel Trail, which depicts the Grimm Brothers' tale in 12 paintings along the way.

The trail ends at the Mural de Fausto, where there's a stage for music shows.
