Whilst the information about the development of the Afrikans language was interesting it was the view of Paarl and its surrounds that really grabbed us. The first day we went up you could see all the way to table mountain! The surrounding area is just...More

Worthwhile trip and very user-friendly self-guided audio-tours at no extra cost. Friendly staff throughout. Great coffee shop and gardens to enjoy more time if you like.

It is well worth taking a guided tour or an audio guide, as there is so much symbolism in this stunning structure. There is ample space to enjoy a picnic, or you can eat at the restaurant. The 360 view from the monument is fantastic.

Amazing to learn about the monument and the view is incredible. There’s a small garden which is good to walk around. I just love what each section of the monument represents and how it all comes together!

What a lovely surprise to hear about and see the Afrikaans Taal Monument in Paarl! A beautiful structure symbolising the elements and characteristics of the Afrikaans language - the world's youngest language!!

Never been before but pleased we found this place. Great views across the valley. Little coffee shop - great for a sit down and refreshments.

We spent the afternoon having a picnic in the park. Later the evening was a live show. The Rockets and we got to meet Cedwyn Joel. Was beautiful. Day well spent with friends.

Interesting to see in the museum how the Afrikaanse language basically was made by a few people in Paarl. And what the origins where of Afrikaans. Furthermore there are some beautiful hikes here with several levels from easy to difficult.
