Country Fun in New Germany
Begin your day along Highway 324 north, take a tour of Lunenburg County Winery. Sample and savour their award-winning fruit wines made using traditional aging methods and the best locally grown fruit. The winery is located on a berry farm, so be sure take home some of that fresh Nova Scotia taste by u-picking blueberries or raspberries when they are in season.
The next stop a bit farther north on Highway 324. Indian Falls is a 25 foot rushing waterfall and historic indigenous salmon fishing grounds. Hike the 1.5 kilometre trail to witness the power of the falls, swim at the bottom, relax in the picnic area or stroll along the rocky beach, taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the pristine environment.

Heading west on the Barss Corner Road takes you through picturesque farmlands where you might catch a glimpse of some of the area’s unique white cows, called Charloais. This road also offers a fragrant experience of why the region is known as the Balsam Fir Christmas Tree Capital of the World.
