German Walk T.O. - BIKE TOUR

room 12 ECHOES

A relaxing cycling tour exploring Toronto's wildly varied landscape, both natural and urban, with stops at sites of German-Canadian significance along the way.

German Consulate Toronto
German Consulate Toronto
Toronto is a city of neighbourhoods, and many of them have a deep and layered ethnic history. Cabbagetown, Chinatown, Little Italy, Little India, Little Jamaica, the Polish Roncesvalles Village, or The Greek Danforth are just some examples of the diversity of Canada's largest city. While Germans in Toronto don’t have one particular neighbourhood to call their own, German influence can be found across the city – hidden and not always obvious. Born out of the city tours that the German Consulate Toronto organizes twice a year with local city tour guides, the consulate in collaboration with the Ryerson University Library introduces #GermanWalkTO. We hope you enjoy discovering Toronto’s German side.
