Facts about Nova Scotia

The Canadian province of Nova Scotia ("Scotland") is the easternmost province of Canada and lies - that may surprise you - southern than Germany.

Supported by the warmth of the Gulf Stream the Canadian conditions are very warm, very pleasant climate with winter average temperatures between 0° C to -10° C and pleasant summers with average 15° C to 18° C.

The already impressive nature makes the province in the autumn months a real visitor magnet. Then, when the first sign of the approaching winter becomes noticeable through the autumnal coloring of the 80% wooded lands, the time of the legendary Indian Summer has come.

Between mid-September and late October, the landscape of Nova Scotia is wrapped in a true color noise, which allows us to say, "you have to have experienced".

Holiday and an investment location Nova Scotia

With a flight time of only about seven hours Nova Scotia can be reached from Central Europe much faster than one would think. The easy access by scheduled and charter flights make a flexible travel possible, therefore more and more Europeans discover Nova Scotia as a beautiful and still relatively inexpensive travel and investment destination. In the period from May to October Halifax is served by the airline Condor up to four times a week directly from Frankfurt. Air Canada offers direct flights almost daily from London to Halifax. Icelandair flies to Halifax from various German cities with a stopover in Reykjavik.

The Lake House

During a trip through Nova Scotia, the visitor can already make an impression on the unique dreamlike nature. Whether as a holiday home or investment: Nova Scotia offers land in a prominent location (lake or ocean) to highly attractive prices, if compared to Europe, the U.S. or Western Canada. Nova Scotia is thus for buyers from Canada, USA, Europe and Far East equally increasingly popular. Ocean and Lake Properties in Nova Scotia are largely undervalued in terms of their quality, for example, in terms of population density, water quality, climate and accessibility.

Halifax - capital and starting point of the British colonization of Nova Scotia

In 1749 landed Captain General Cornwallis with the first settlers in today's region of the Halifax Harbor to build an outpost for the British military. At that time France had already defined its own settlement point with the Fortress of Louisburg at Cape Breton, which is not only a popular tourist destination, but also a fine example of a typical region affected by centuries-long interaction between the Canadian, the French and the British. The signs of the troubled past can still be seen on foot today. The 1.5 km long waterfront combines the restored historic building "Privateers Wharf", "Pier 21" (Here landed more than a million refugees since 1924 and migrants with the ship) and Boardwalk.

The Nova Scotia experience

It is impossible to deny the European roots in the eastern Canada region, which coupled with typical local offers results in a fantastic quality of life for residents and tourists. The possibilities due to the proximity to the Atlantic are many (e.g. tidal bore rafting, whale watching). The culinary experiences that combine Lobster, fine wines and local cuisine, and the Cabot Trail can be appreciated on your next visit to the Nova Scotia region - by the way, the German language is quite common in many places.
