Villa General Belgrano was founded in 1930, by two German speculators
attracted by its agricultural potential. The Alpine quality of the village attracted immigrants from Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Austria.The village, characterized by its typically Bavarian style architecture,
survives on a steady flow of tourists with an appetite for German
delicacies like apple strudel, leberwurst and beer . Oktoberfest here is hailed as the third-most important Oktoberfest site after Munich and Blumenau in Brazil
Arriving after lunch we looked for accomodation and ended up in a cabana just outside the town.... it is amazing here..it really looked like a something out of Bavaria ....all the properties in the main street are wooden and look like little swiss cottages, there are all sorts of german gift shops and plenty of tourists..a very interesting friendly place..we loved it..
