Place of worship NG Kerk Swellendam

What a phenomenal building, strong in character, genius architecture. It rises above all other buildings. One cannot miss it, the whole town surrounds it.

WOW what a great looking church
Mar 2020
as part of our little day out we visited the church. they ask for a small donation which is fine, and there is a small area of historicsl interest under the stairs. The outside's beauty out ways the insides dull ness, but as i am lead to believe that the inside is for worshipping only, why does it have to be posh?

good half hour visit

Beautiful Building
Nov 2019
This Dutch Reform Church is definitely worth a visit. The original church on this site was built in 1802 and this building was erected in 1911. It is Cape Dutch in architectural style and very plain inside according to Dutch Refirm tradition. There are interesting gravestones in the beautifully kept gardens surrounding the church

Worth a Visit
Feb 2019 • Couples
Quite unique, it’s an old church, in fact the oldest on the Cape. Very Dutch in architecture beautifully kept & inside it’s not what you would expect our church’s to be like, ie set out in rows & a aisle in the middle. It is set in a circular layout. All looking inwards. Not seen it like that before.

A Lovely church to visit
Dec 2018 • Couples
We like visiting churches to get a local flavour and this one does not disappoint. It was most unusual inside. There is a small fee to enter.

Special round-shaped interior
Nov 2018 • Couples
On the outside, you already see that this church is extremely well maintained. On the inside, you will see the sitting benches in a round shape making going to church a sort of event with family and friends.
