Top 3 travel tips

1. Take a trip to the famous landmark

On the top of Corcovado is a 38-metre-high figure of Christ, considered the most famous landmark of Rio de Janeiro. The 1,145 ton statue, which stands on an eight meter high pedestal, can be reached with the Corcovado mountain railway. From there you have a fantastic view to the rock sugar loaf.

2. Admire outstanding works of art in the museums

There are several interesting museums in the city, such as the Museu Chácara do Céu, which presents works by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Claude Monet. The "Museu Histórico Nacional" is dedicated to the history of Brazil and shows various objects and furniture from the colonial period. Other museums worth seeing are the Museu do Indio and the Museu Paço Imperial.

3. Experience one of the biggest parades in the world

Every year on the Friday before Ash Wednesday the carnival begins in Rio de Janeiro, for which thousands of spectators travel to witness the colourful spectacle of samba, dance and music. The costumes of the parade organized by the Samba schools are usually worked on for a whole year in order to make the queens and kings appear particularly splendid.

The city got its name, which means "January River", due to an error of the discoverer Gaspar de Lemos. For he considered the bay, which he reached on 1 January 1502, to be the mouth of a river.

Things to know

The famous beach and its district

Rios district Copacabana borders directly on the Atlantic Ocean and has a four kilometer long sandy beach, which is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. A long promenade stretches along the crescent-shaped bay, which is translated as "little sea princess". Not far from the beach you can take a stroll on a marbled Portuguese sidewalk of the Avenida Atlantica and enjoy the wonderful view of the sea.

A roaring atmosphere at the football match

Brazil's national sport is football, which is why each state holds its own football championship in the first half of the year. Football has been a tradition here since the beginning of the 20th century. This is why every year hundreds of thousands of fans come to the stadiums to watch famous tournaments like the "Campeonato Carioca" live.
