The manor is nice and well preserved. The on-site cafe has the most amazing Apfelstrudel with cream. It also has other things to eat. Minimal 10 reais per person Entry fee is cash only. Cafe takes cards.

Paga-se R$ 10,00 para entrar e conhecer a edificação. É a única coisa que vale a pena fazer. A torta de maçã é uma tristeza. Nunca vi torta sem massa! Vejam as fotos: é aquele horror mesmo. Um monte de recheio jogado no prato, sem...More

We only visited the grounds which it did not cost us anything since the house itself was closed. Nice bucolic setting, antique farming equipment, good photo ops.

The sightseeing is nice but everything else it's just not worth it. It's absurdly overpriced, the apple strudel is shameful and the variety simply doesn't exist. To add insult to injury you have to pay just to get in the coffee area and you only...More

The place is simple, nothing different. The apfelstrudell is very expensive and you will pay 35 reais to eat it. Really, just keep going in your trip, don't bother to stop over there.
