City Sights

The whole of Lunenburg is a sight to see in itself, which is why the town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. In addition to a walk through the heart of the town past colourful wooden buildings and imposing shipping villas, the harbour is well worth a visit. The town’s typical red wooden houses stand along the pier and lead to the maritime museum. You can find out more about the maritime tradition of Lunenburg in the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. From the harbour you can see the HMCS Rose. This sailing ship was built in the shipbuilding yard in Lunenburg and is the largest wooden ship still in operation in the world. The Bluenose II is also anchored in its home port in Lunenburg. The schooner is a replica of the famous Canadian tall ship Bluenose. The Bluenose sailed in the 1930s on the Atlantic and became the symbol of the region and the whole of Canada. Today, its image adorns the Canadian 10-cent piece and is the motor vehicle emblem of Nova Scotia. There is no better place to get to know Canada’s maritime side than Lunenburg.
