Boat Tour Montreal

The Boat Tour Montreal offers a magnificent view of downtown, Mont-Royal, the Île Sainte-Hélène and the locks of the Lachine Canal.

From the passenger port in Montreal, Canada, one has a great view to the impressive market hall of the Marché Bonsecours . Originally, it was City Hall and Parliament seat, later a concert hall. Today, preferentially art objects and furniture are offered inside.

We glide along two popular destinations, the islands of Notre-Dame and Sainte-Hélène, the latter venue of the 1967 World Exhibition, a transparent dome-shaped building reminds of it. Today it houses the Montreal Biosphere Environmental Museum a multimedia museum devoted to water and ecosystems, in particular those of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River.

In the context of the EXPO, the Habitat 67 was built, a sensational building at that time. The 158 concret cubes were piled up apparently arbitrarily on each other so that the terraces are not mutually open. The dynamic design still forms the basis for a popular residential property.

A terraced house on the old storage building - L'Héritage du Vieux-Port - can be purchased for several million dollars.
