New Hamburg

New Hamburg, Ontario is home to approximately 8,000 people in Wilmot Township, part of the Region of Waterloo. It is a popular spot for commuters to Kitchener-Waterloo who are looking for a less expensive, small-town lifestyle.

The Nith River winds through the downtown core of New Hamburg, which is home to a 50-foot waterwheel operated by the river. The community is home to a number of recreational facilities including Scott Park and the Arboretum.

New Hamburg has three primary schools, but due to the limited enrolment high school students are transported to Waterloo-Oxford District Secondary School near Baden.

The historic streets of New Hamburg do not allow high rise buildings, so most apartments for rent are located in low-rise communities. Hincks Street Apartments offer the majority of New Hamburg’s rental housing.
