About New Hamburg

Founded in 1834, New Hamburg is a friendly rural town that emerged along the banks of the Nith River. Nestled in Wilmot Township, downtown New Hamburg is not only the home of many longstanding businesses, but serves as a heritage site for residents and visitors, with its charismatic historical buildings and celebrated conservation landmarks.

There is always plenty to do in New Hamburg, as the town boasts many year-round daytime and evening festivities, including concerts, festivals, craft sales, food fairs, classic car exhibitions, homegrown parades, and more! Known for its hospitality and customer service, the town offers clothing stores, gift shops, and eateries that cater to the population at large. It is also just a short drive to Kitchener-Waterloo and the Stratford Festival, and about an hour drive to Toronto’s Pearson Airport.

Did you know the new GRT Route 77 BusPLUS for Wilmot Community has a stop just outside the Morningside Retirement Community? This transit service offers two-way travel and Flex Routing through New Hamburg along Waterloo Street, Huron Street and Peel Street, on weekdays.  This 19 seat vehicle is fully accessible with a ramp and wheelchair spaces.
