More Downtown Walking Tours

One of the best ways to explore and truly experience Kitchener is by walking through our neighbourhoods and visiting the places that have helped shape our city. Self-guided tours allow you to learn about our rich history, vibrant culture, great diversity and modern amenities - at your own pace and in your own time. Learn more.

Take a walk in downtown and follow the Downtown Heritage Walking Tour.

The Downtown Stroll begins at Victoria Park and continues in a clockwise direction to City Hall, the Civic District and King Street East before returning to the downtown core.

Follow the Victoria Park Historical Walking Tour takes you through Victoria Park using the pathways designed to afford scenic views.

It was amazing what wonders it did for us! From the lights and the music and the smells and watching everyone smiling and laughing... it instantly lifted our spirits and helped us keep them there through the whole holiday. Now we can't wait year to year for the first ads and we rush to mark it on the calendars. We always go the Friday night, no kids or friends, just us - to sit and take it all in. You don't know what you are missing until you have been there!
