Frutillar is widely believed to be the Lake District's loveliest town. It is on the western shore of Lago Llanquihue and was founded by German settlers in 1856. The charming little town has beautiful views over the lake of the famous Volcán Osorno, and the sandy shores of the lake are lined with a mix of hotels, craft markets, restaurants and old German architecture.

You've seen so many beautiful and fascinating places. I would never have thought to find German buildings in Chile! Oh, and that picture of the volcano is truly spectacular!
