Sherbrooke is a lively urban destination located in the heart of the Eastern Townships. With its irregular relief of valleys and plateaus, it is the 6th largest city in Quebec and the regional capital of the Eastern Townships.
A city of gourmet delights and culture
Sherbrooke enjoys a gastronomic reputation that is matched only by the talent of its chefs. The Marché de la Gare and the Halte des Pèlerins vineyard, a member of the Eastern Townships Wine Route, offer abundant displays of regional products.
Sherbrooke, a vibrant city
Music occupies a prominent place in Sherbrooke’s cultural calendar with the renowned concert halls that are the Centre culturel de l’Université de Sherbrooke, the Théâtre Granada and Place Nikitotek during the summer. In addition, there are the Concerts de la Cité, Sherblues & Folk and other festivals. These give life to a downtown that stays up late with its offer of bars, microbreweries and terraces.
An urban nature
Sherbrooke would not be so well qualified as an urban city without its varied offer of outdoor activities in an urban environment. Whether you want to go out on one of the three rivers in a canoe or kayak, take one of the 14 walking routes, or ride the 125 km of the bicycle network in the summer, you’ll be served! Not to mention the unmissable meeting place in the heart of the city: Lac des Nations, which offers a simply enchanting setting.
