Meeting Copacabana and Arpoador

Students and the sunset

Students and the sunset

Der Besuch der Copacabana-Festung war sehr interessant, kann ich jedem weiterempfehlen, schoen ist auch der Sonnenuntergang in Arpoador. Da diese Aktivitaet in meiner ersten Woche stattfand, konnte ich auch die Leute der Schule besser kennen lernen und natuerlich fleissig Portugiesisch sprechen.

Copacabana and Arpoardor are very popular places in Rio de Janeiro, but people don’t explore very much these places, sometimes they even only stay in Copacabana. Besides the beach, people can visit the fort (Forte de Copacabana), built in the past to protect the city coast and nowadays it is a nice museum. Also Pedra do Arpoador, a beautiful place to visit the beach and also enjoy the sunset.

Our students from France, Spain, Colombia, Iceland and United States had the experience of meeting Copacabana and Arpoador in another perspective. They started taking a good walk through Copacabana’s beach and ended in their first stop, the fort, where they visited the museum and got information about the history of the Brazilian Army. After, we went towards Ipanema and besides the beach, students could get a nice view from the sunset at Pedra do Arpoador.
