Very Good
Quiet little town, despite the mass amounts of tourists. Everyone was quite pleasant. Loved watching the horse and carriage tours go by through my window. Highly recommend the Knot Pub if you're in the area.

The scenery was spectacular, sometimes breath taking. We ate at The Salt Shaker Deli. A good place for seafood and many more. Good atmosphere, friendly. It is easy to get around Lunenburg by car or simply by walking around.

Historically significant and architecturally interesting. Restaurants hard to find. Hard to walk for less-abled travellers. For the older traveller. Not much to do.

Lunenburg is a very beautiful town .All the buildings are brightly colored. The bay is picturesque with boats and lovely green fields across the water. Seafood was outstanding and service people were friendly.

Love Lunengurg. It is a deliteful place to visit although the steepness of the streets played the devil with my knees. But, that would not deter me from going back

Recommended in Lunenburg

Most of Lunenburg is very touristy now, however on the drive from Lunenburg to Mahone Bay, there is a little restaurant called the Old Black Forest Cafe and Gasthof that is well worth stopping at to savour the taste of Old Lunenburg which was populated by German settlers in the 1700s.

The coast line varies from location to location but we enjoyed driving it as well. Nice clean village with friendly people. We would love to come back an spend more time!

From the golf course looking across to Lunenburg harbour. Down on the port at night. Any if the streets and the bright colored houses. Blue rocks at sunset or sunrise.

Lunenburg is a UNESCO world heritage site as it still retains the original street layout and many 1700 era buildings - a real gem to walk around.

Booking.com asked travelers...

Why do you recommend Lunenburg for food?

Food was excellent and service was great. Food was a little pricy but one can appreciate this as tourism is their main form of income.

We really enjoyed The Grand Banker - the Acadian Style Cajun Seafood Stew is worth going back for!!

Visit during the week not weekend.

Haunted tour, horse & buggy tour

Relaxing and inspiring.
