You should know that Minden is also the name of a city in Germany. The German Minden is much larger even when surrounding villages of the Canadian Minden have been incorporated now and everything is now called Minden Hills.
We came to our Minden when we stopped at friends who had moved to this beautiful area. We were immediately invited to stay at their place overnight. That is Canadian hospitality!
They just had moved into a heritage building and were in the middle of renovating it.
Originally, they had planned to open a B & B, but that was not feasible because of certain regulations which had to be met. We felt very sorry about that because we immediately knew that many visitors from overseas would love to stay in such a place.
The area is great when you love nature and to explore it. Many outdoor activities are offered such as canoeing, golfing etc. To rent a cottage for a longer stay would be our first choice of accommodation.
Check for actual events. We learned that there is always something going on to keep the visitors entertained. We missed an art festival during our brief visit. Elizabeth - my wife - would certainly have loved to visit one of the antique shows.
Minden is also an attraction during winter.
The sight from the house where we stayed
Above picture we borrowed from one of the previous web sites of Minden
It shows a sunset at the Gull River.
Unfortunately. most of the pictures which I had taken, got lost when our computer was stolen during a break in. I had many of the Gull River and also of the city.
Minden at the banks of the Gull River - many thanks to "P199" and Wikipedia
Certainly an interesting event, thanks to the "Minden Times"
Minden can be considered as the gate to the "Haliburton Highland". It is surrounded by crystal clear lakes and forests with many hills. But also rocks of the "Canadian Shield" can be seen.
We could see also the affords to make the stay in this region as pleasant as possible for tourists. The future depends very much on tourism.
If some of these activities - see the first video below- are not exactly what you expect book a flight in a small airplane and escape into the real wilderness or just for a sightseeing pleasure flight. You can also try ice fishing in a remote area. We loved it! Just visit our web site to see what to expect.
