Bariloche's economy relies heavily on tourism. The fishing season is another attraction, with the city being part of a large lakes district. Mountain treks are also popular.

The city is also famous -- or infamous -- for harbouring old Nazis. Bariloche made headlines in 1995 when it became known as a haven for former Nazi war criminals like former high ranking official of the SS Erich Priebke who had been living there for years as rector of the German School of Bariloche. Besides him, more German WWII war veterans were found there, including Adolph Eichmann.

There's some great architecture here too, including the Domingo Sarmiento Library and the Francisco Moreno Museum of Patagonia. And with its western location, it's easy to get to Chile from Bariloche.
