Carefully scattered among the vineyards, gazing across hills and large mountains in the distance, Stellenbosch merges with the picturesque surroundings of the Cape Winelands.
As the second oldest town in South Africa, its streets are lined with water furrows and 300 year old oak trees that reach into the sky. Here, hundreds of university students bustle among the Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian buildings that date back to the early 1700s, hosting street festivals, flea markets, art exhibitions and music concerts, all year round.
A true cultural spring, Stellenbosch is fueled by its exquisite wineries. Home to the oldest wine route in South Africa, Stellenbosch boasts with over 200 wine and grape producers that fall within the boundaries of the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin classification, most of which produce world famous, award winning wines. Guests are invited to tour the cellars, taste the wines and enjoy lavish meals at many of the on-site restaurants, while soaking up the vibrant energy of this unique town.
