World of Chocolate (Mundo de Chocolate)
Located in the mountain resort of Gramado—a German settlement famous for its Bavarian architecture—World of Chocolate (Mundo de Chocolate) showcases more than 200 sculptures made entirely from chocolate. You’ll see replicas of the Eiffel Tower and the Leaning Tower of Pisa and enjoy samples of the building material as you go.
A visit to Mundo de Chocolate typically begins with a self-guided tour of chocolate landmarks that represent different parts of the world. Highlights include the Statue of Liberty, Christ the Redeemer, the pyramids of Egypt, the Great Wall of China, and the Taj Mahal. Chocolate tastings are available throughout the park, while a chocolate-making workshop in the factory provides a hands-on experience. During the peak summer season, Mundo de Chocolate can attract large crowds, so opt for a skip-the-line ticket if you’re visiting then.
