Warming Stations

Warming stations
Ville de Québec

From early December to March, several warming stations are installed throughout the city for visitors wishing to warm up while exploring in winter. Chairs, a gas fireplace, fir trees to protect from the wind plus a cabin or a patio heater will wait for guests at the stations. Watch out for the special program that will liven up the places on various days.
