The historic town of Lunenburg is noted as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and it is the only one in this region of Canada. This fishing and ship-building town was settled by Germans, Swiss, and French in the mid 1700s. The town became a center for trade with the West Indies.

Today Lunenburg retains its charm in the Old Town, and visitors flock to this colorful town to see its maritime roots.

There are several sites of interest to tourists, please read my following tips for ideas.
