We have set out to highlight the many contributions and cooperations - past and present - that link Germany and Germans to Canada's largest city. Whom better to ask to help us in this task than Shawn Micallef, author of "Stroll" and Toronto Star columnist?

The result of our cooperation is this web application; it features many places in Toronto with German connections - historical facts, modern presence, quirky connections or offers of German food and drink.
Please note that our ambition has not and cannot be to establish a complete and scientifically correct list of places with a German context in Toronto. But if you find errors or want to suggest additions, please contact us.

But first of all:  Enjoy the German Walk!
