Steinbach Travel Guide

Over a century ago, the first German-speaking Mennonite settlers from Russia gave the name Steinbach to this precious area, which (translated to English) means, "Stony Brook”. Appreciating this historic city also means understanding the values and Mennonite culture. To do so visitors can learn of the founding of Steinbach at The Mennonite Heritage Village museum. European speaking Germans and other German visitors from around the globe will take comfort in knowing they can use their native language (to some degree) with many of the local German residents.
Interestingly enough, the area has grown to be widely known as a car dealership ‘country’ and thus adopted the name ‘The Automobile City’. Ironic, considering the more conservative communities of Mennonites traditionally use horse and buggies, which is not the complete story here. Steinbach is modern in many ways and still stands as the largest collective of dealers in Manitoba.
