Neustadt was named one of the ten
prettiest villages in Canada by Harrowsmith Magazine in their April 2000 edition
Neustadt blends the historic with the contemporary, and has been able to retain it's rural village character in a picturesque country setting steeped in tradition. Founded in 1855 by David Winkler, Neustadt (German for new town) is the birthplace of Canada's 13th Prime Minister, John Diefenbaker.
While strolling through the friendly village, visitors can choose from an array of specialty shops featuring antiques, art, handmade quilts, collectibles, fabrics, garden art and supplies, gifts, primitives, home decor, dried flowers, pottery, craft supplies, wild bird feed, and oriental furniture. We have a working brewery with a retail shop, a meat market and of course the Canadian Royal Heritage Museum (Diefenbaker Home)
Also for visitors enjoyment , great meals are available at one of our fine restaurants or tavern, or enjoy a family picnic at the Neustadt Lions Community Park.
Heading northwest from Orangeville or north along number 6 from
Guelph will lead you past a lovely series of towns including
Arthur, Harriston and Clifford before taking Country. Rd. 10
east to Neustadt.
An added bonus of any Neustadt visit is the opportunity for side trips to the surrounding countryside. The gently rolling farmlands of the area have sustained a prosperous agricultural community for 140 years
For those interested in history
and architecture, the finest collection of fieldstone farmhouses,
churches and schools in western Ontario are waiting to be discovered
on the back roads and highways in the area.
Plan to visit Neustadt, Ontario, a gem of a destination!
