Parque do Povo - Peoples' Park

Av. Henrique Chamma, 590 - Itaim, Bibi, São Paulo, CEP 04533-130 

täglich 7 - 22h

 

Noch ein kleiner Park inmitten der Stadt São Paulo. Ideal für Sportler, die eine flache Laufbahn suchen oder Eltern, die ihren Kindern das

Fahrradfahren beibringen wollen. 

Es gibt dort auch einen sehr netten, schattigen Spielplatz. Der “Volkspark” ist eine 133.000m2 grosse Grünflache mit einigen Bäumen, Kakteen und Orchideen, zwischen der Marginal Pinheiros und dem neuen Luxuscomplex “Shopping JK”, mit einer 1,6km in der Runde angelegten Fahrrad- und Laufbahn. Sehr sicher, gut bewacht und mit Parkplätzen entlang der Eingänge (mit Parkverbotsschildern, die am Wochenende nicht gelten - sagen die Einheimischen!). Es gibt allerdings keine Kioske - Picknick und Getränke mitbringen! WCs vorhanden.

Daily 7 - 22hrs

Another small park in the middle of São Paulo. Ideal for athletes who prefer to run on an even surface and parents who want to teach their kids cycling. You will also find a very nice, shady playground there. The “Peoples’ Park” is a green 133.000m2 lot, with some trees, cactus and orchids, situated between the Marginal Pinheiros and the newly developed luxury Shopping complex “JK”. The park offers a 1,6 km circular running and cycling path, is well patrolled by police and considered quite safe. You will find parking alongside the 2 entrances - although it has “parking prohibited” signs: Locals will tell you that they are not valid at the weekends! (Remember: you are in Brazil!)  Unfortunately the park has no stands with drinks or food - bring your own, DIY! There are toilets.

 

 

MAC USP Ibirapuera

Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São Paulo

Museum of Contemporary Art of the University of São Paulo (Ibirapuera)

 

Av. Pedro Álvares Cabral, 1301 CEP 04094-050 São Paulo

Di 10 - 21hs, Mi - So 10 - 18hs

Eintritt frei. Parken gratis.

 

Noch ein absolut “gratis” Museumstipp mit dem Pünktchen auf dem i - oder besser gesagt mit einer atemberaubenden Aussichtsterrasse im 8. Stock. Der Weitblick richtet sich über den gesamten Ibirapuera Park mit Morumbi- und Marginal Pinheiros Skyline.

Das Gebäude selbst, von Oscar Niemeyer ausgedacht, beeindruckt sicherlich Architekturfans. Auf 6 Stockwerken findet man Ausstellungen von über 10.000 Kunstwerken, unter anderem von Picasso, Matisse, Kandinsky, Tarsila do Amaral, Volpi, Jay Maisel und vielen anderen. Auch Fotografien befinden sich unter den ausgestellten Werken.

Leider: kein Café oder Sitzecke zum Sich-Treffen.

Für die Gartengestaltung blieb nach der teuren Renovierung (R$ 76 Mio.) in 2012 leider kein Geld mehr.

Über eine Fussgängerbrücke kann man das Museum auch vom Park aus zu Fuss sehr schnell erreichen.

Tue 10 - 21hrs, Wed - Sun 10 - 18hrs

Entrance & parking: free

 

Another absolute FREE and amazing museum (just opposite Ibirapuera Park) with a breathtaking terrace view on the 8th floor: you will be taken by surprise by the extensive view of the park and the skyline in the back (showing Morumbi and the skyscrapers on the Marginal Pinheiros). The building itself was designed by Oscar Niemeyer and will definitely please architectural fans. More than 10.000 pieces of art spread over 6 floors - amongst them you will find names like Picasso, Matisse, Kandinsky, Tarsila do Amaral, Volpi and Jay Maisel. There are photographs on exhibition too.

What did I miss? A place to have a coffee or drinks, a corner to sit and meet friends.

What I noticed: After the costly R$ 76mio. renovation in 2012 there was no money left for the landscaping around the building - what a pity!

You can also easily access the museum over a foot bridge from Ibirapuera Park.
