The old saying goes, "When in Rome, do as the Romans". So does that mean, "When in Venezuela, do as the Germans"? Well actually, it kind of does. Founded in 1843 by German immigrants, the tiny village of Colonia Tovar is a slice of Bavaria. The entire town follows the same architectural style, so much so, you could swear you're in Germany. A place to get your fill of sauerkraut, sausages and arguably the best beer in the country, the village is one of the more popular weekend getaways for Caracas families (being much cooler at 2,000+ meters above sea level doesn't hurt either) With some of the best tourist infrastructure in the country, with countless hotels and restaurants, strap on your lederhosen and join in the crowds.
