What you should know about Charlesbourg

Founded by Jesuits in the mid-17th century, the suburb of Charlesbourg is one of Québec’s most important historical areas. The original village was built in a star pattern, with its streets spreading out from a central point to protect the colonial settlers. When the village of Charlesbourg merged with the city of Québec in the second half of the 20th century, this shape was preserved along with a number of important examples of historic French and Québecois architecture.

Hotels in Charlesbourg

Charlesbourg hotels reflect the refined character of the neighborhood itself, with beautifully decorated rooms in elegant surroundings. Complete with a golf course and spa facilities, the 4-star Four Points hotel is a great option for anyone in need of a quiet place to unwind. A more affordable Charlesbourg accommodation option is le Domaine du Lac Saint Charles, a cozy wooden lodge with its own private garden. In the winter months, consider checking in to the Hôtel de Glace, one of only two ice hotels in the world. Each room in this luxury Charlesbourg hotel is individually designed according to the year’s theme and the beds are carved out of solid ice.

Things to see in Charlesbourg

A green and leafy suburb, Charlesbourg boasts a number of parks and outdoor hiking trails. One of the largest of these is Montagne des Roches, which offers a network of footpaths for visitors looking to explore its varied and fascinating selection of flora and fauna. The Charlesbourg area is defined by its colonial history, and no building sums up this history better than the Moulin des Jesuits. Constructed in the mid-18th century, this historical mill has changed with the times, as part of the modernization of Québec itself. Lovingly restored in the early 1990s, the Mill now houses a display explaining the history of the Trait-Carré (Charlesbourg’s distinctive star-shaped layout) and forms the starting point for walking tours of Old Charlesbourg. Also worth a visit is the St. Charles Borromée Church—a large, 19th-century neo-classical building with a beautifully decorated interior which is mentioned in numerous Charlesbourg hotel reviews.

Good for couples

Charlesbourg is a slightly more relaxed neighborhood than the crowded old town, making it the ideal place for a romantic getaway. In the winter there are good cross-country skiing opportunities offered by the Centre de Ski de Fond Charlesbourg and the summer months see locals and visitors alike relaxing on the banks of the nearby Lake Saint-Charles. Offering picturesque views, romantic hiking trails, and some of the best luxury hotels in Québec, this historic district offers a countryside vibe right on the doorstep of the city.
