Things to do in


There's much to love about winter in Quebec City - from its festive vibes, its fairytale architecture, and warming Canadian comfort food. Here are the best things to do in Quebec City in winter.

Quartier Petit Champlain

The twinkling lights and charming storefronts of this charming shopping street make it seem straight out of a Hallmark Christmas movie - especially in winter in Quebec City.

German Christmas Market

The authentic German Christmas Market is one of the best things to do in Quebec City in December - and is the next best thing to being in Germany!

Chateau Frontenac

The historic hotel, housed in a castle, is one of the most photographed hotels in the world. You can also take a guided tour of the inside.

Ice Skating

Ice skating in Place d'Youville, with the city's fortified gates on one side and the Christmas Market on the other,  feels like skating inside a snowglobe.

Tobboggan Ride

Zooming down a tobboggan slide in Dufferin Terrace at speeds up to 40mph is one of the most fun and thrilling things to do in Quebec City in winter.
