The Essential Lunenburg Tour is a great way to start your visit to Lunenburg. With spectacular sites around every corner in Old Town Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this hour-long tour is brimming with local history and 18th century and Victorian architecture. Along the way, our local guides make the sites come alive with cultural tidbits like superstitions, folklore, and local facts, and they weave it all together with lots of unique personal stories and visitor recommendations.  Far more than a walking tour, Essential Lunenburg is a destination event sure to enrich your Lunenburg experience.


The tour begins at the Lunenburg Academy grounds (97 Kaulbach Street, free parking) and follows a gentle downhill route (suitable for most mobility levels) to the finale point on the waterfront near the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, shops, art galleries and restaurants.
