Each of our cities and towns has something unique to offer. Whether it’s a venue, a product, a landscape, an attraction or an event, you’ll always find at least 5 good reasons to visit... Sherbrooke!

By Carolyne Parent

It’s a worldwide fact, and Sherbrooke is no exception: A university town always brings about a dynamic living environment. As a result, the city teems with energy and innovative ideas, including its trompe-l’oeil mural tour, the first of its kind in Canada. Undoubtedly, the heart of our Townships will truly seduce you with its amazing cultural, gourmet and sports offer!

Meet Adèle Blais at the Museum

This season, to highlight women in history, painter and collage artist Adèle Blais is presenting What Would We Be?, an exhibition that pieces together the puzzle of the founding women of the Eastern Townships and Québec. Through these vibrant collage fragments, you’ll discover our local history. On view until September 3, 2023.

Discover the Sherbrooke Murals Circuit

A true open-air art gallery, the Sherbrooke Murals circuit is made up of 18 large frescoes painted on the walls of several buildings in downtown Sherbrooke. Walk along the route and, with the help of the Baladodiscovery application, take the time to observe each detail of these large murals and listen to the stories they reveal.

Immerse Yourself in Nature

Mont-Bellevue Park plays a vital role by truly being the lungs of the City of Sherbrooke. Hiking and mountain biking are two very popular activities here! With its 16 kilometres of mountain bike trails, this mountain in the heart of the city, though small, is sure to give you an adrenalin rush! And the best part? Access is free!

Soak in the Heat

A trip to the spa is a great complement to any city outing, and at Strøm Nordic Spa you’re truly well served! Firstly, the site is magnificent, with pools and fireplaces set along the banks of the Magog River. Secondly, you’ll enjoy numerous welcoming relaxation areas. Our favourite, located high up, offers a view overlooking the waves and has the feel of a stylish chalet! Finally, the restaurant Nord serves a boreal type cuisine celebrating our nordicity. The menu features local sea buckthorn berries, pinewood nard and salmon, among other treats. You’re so relaxed that you don’t want to go home? Then head to the nearby Delta by Marriott Hotel for a good night’s sleep!

Enjoy a Pint…

Did you know that the first microbrewery in Québec was founded here in Sherbrooke? Since then, the enthusiasm for good craft brews hasn’t waned, quite to the contrary. When you’re in town, try La Sherbière, the city’s unofficial ambassador, and a lager concocted by Siboire. You’ll find plenty of places to raise a pint on King Street West, Depot Street and Galt Street West. Don’t miss out on the experience!
