Many thanks to MapArt for allowing us to use their maps

Guelph was founded in 1827. It was for me a big surprise that the town has still many historical buildings. Normally older buildings are considered to be a safety hazard or not to be up to standards and are torn down.
Naturally, you can't compare Guelph with an European town, but it was nice to see that the heritage is considered to be very valuable. I believe it is also good for the citizens and for tourism.
Participate in one of the guided tours which are offered between beginning of May and end of October on every Sunday.

The landmark of Guelph - the church "Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception"

The inside of the church

The interior of the church reminds me of churches in Europe. I could not believe that the last required changes were done in 1926.

Guelph became immediately one of our favorite townships in the Southern part of Ontario.
It is full of life and everywhere you can see pretty girls. I was told that most of them are students on the university. I was almost feeling like in Europe. We had a light meal sitting outside an enjoying the beautiful weather. Many thanks to a wise city council which obviously did not allow that historical buildings are being replaced by ugly "new developments"!

The city hall of Guelph

Find a parking space and explore downtown Guelph. You will find well maintained buildings from the past which make this town so different to others. Check what the privately owned stores have to offer. We thinks this is more interesting than shopping in one of the malls with all the chain stores which offer everywhere the same things.

"Downtown" Guelph

Guelph is part of the so called "Technology Triangle" and it has a well respected university.
Whenever you have plans to establish or move a company to Ontario you should check out Guelph.
Guelph offers something for everybody. Music festivals which include classical music, blues, rock and jazz. Furthermore you will find art galleries, theaters, cinemas and many, many restaurants and pubs.
If you are in Guelph, always ask for ongoing events and opening times of the various places.

The "Carden Street Cafe" known by many North American gourmets

Join a beer tour in the "Woolwich Arm & Arrow Pub"

The beer tour was our last adventure in Guelph. It was fun and the food was also excellent. You always get four different beers served on a special plate in tiny little glasses - at least for me as a born Bavarian they looked very small.
After you have tried all the available beers you test those again which you liked until you find your favorite brand. If you have a hard time to decide which beer you prefer, please do not drive after you finally know. We decided to visit the next time a local beer fest to learn more about beer brewed in Guelph.
Guelph has several breweries and I believe that our beer tour in the pub was a great exercise for the great event.
Nature lovers will love the "Arboretum" which display a collection of many plants including approximately 2900 different kinds of trees. In addition there is a "Conservation Area" which offers fishing, swimming, wind surfing and boat rental and nice parks for walking.
In our web site for Elmira we mentioned a roofed bridge. Here you can visit another one. You will find it close where the rivers Speed and Eramosa Rivers meet.
