Exceptional
We loved the feeling of being in a sea town. Lots of good restaurants with seafood choices. The parking was the main problem, our hotel did not have its own, so you have to drive around many times to secure a spot and if not close to site you pull your luggage along busy streets

The Town have done a wonderful job of maintaining their heritage and architecture but have not let that interfere with modern commerce as there appear to be several thriving industries there.

Everything is within walking distance, except the view from across the harbour from the golf course. Loved the "Glimpses" local theatre presentation.

Very Good
The atmosphere is very pleasant, and the town is beautiful to walk around. I definitely recommend the ghost walking tour! And try some Ironworks rum!

Beautiful town on the water with great food and scenic views. Plenty of shopping and wandering to do. We lucked into a tall ships festival, but there are a few in town most of the time.

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.

The service industry is well informed of the history of he town.

Visit during the week not weekend.

Haunted tour, horse & buggy tour

Relaxing and inspiring.

Unique shops, local art
