Kitchener-Waterloo The Essential
The twin industrial cities of southern Ontario were founded in the early 19C by German immigrants. As orderly and tidy as at their beginnings, Kitchener and Waterloo organize an Oktoberfest every autumn in which beer and local delicacies generally sold in farmers' markets take pride of place. Home to a concert hall, a workshop-theatre and an art gallery, Kitchener is also a hub of cultural activity.
