Toronto : the perfect city for a long weekend


Toronto : the perfect city for a long weekend

Outings / Jan 16, 2018

A rich cultural scene, innovative gastronomy, world-class sports teams: the city of Toronto has it all. We asked our concierge teams at Le Germain Hotel Toronto and Le Germain Hotel Maple Leaf Square to give us their suggestions for must-see activities during a winter getaway to the metropolis.

Eat & drink


There’s no denying that Toronto is head over heels for Canis, the restaurant of the hour on everybody’s lips (and every foodie Instagram account). The restaurant, which opened in 2017, offers a tasting menu featuring local and seasonal ingredients. A must!

CRAFT Beer Market

Beer lovers will rejoice at this Toronto hotspot dedicated to beer. CRAFT offers the largest selection of beers on tap in the country – something to please every taste and every budget.

Bar Raval

While it certainly isn’t new, it’s hard to ever get tired of the decor and the ambiance at Bar Raval, a Spanish-inspired bar where Cocktail is spelled with a capital C.

See & Do

The Bentway

In the winter, what could be more fun than getting bundled up to go skating? This winter the City of Toronto has opened The Bentway, a skating rink in the form of a trail under the Gardiner Expressway. It’s a great way to see the city differently!

Winter at Ontario Place

Until March 18, Ontario Place becomes a large outdoor play area for young and old alike. Light installations, snow sculptures, campfires and other fun winter activities await you.

Royal Ontario Museum For those who prefer to spend the winter nice and warm inside four walls, the Royal Ontario Museum is a wonderful place to visit. It’s the perfect spot to linger, while admiring some of the most beautiful works of art in the world. The exhibition on Christian Dior is a must-see.

Enjoy your visit to Toronto!
