    The gardens are beautiful. So many different textures and the way that they have been sculpted in places leaves you wondering how they did it. The sculptures are magnificent and when you look at them from different angles you get a different interpretation each time. The walk is only only 2km long and it is up and down but it is not too taxing as long as you are mobile. It is a great place to sit and contemplate as the views are just stunning. I would love to go back if we are in the area again.

    Great street to walk along, but certainly not the only one. Include Church and Bird, and the side streets for a truly "European" setting. Many café's and wine bars to visit between shopping.

    This is certainly the most beautiful and effective University in the Country. The University is beautiful and very clean. The students are very disciplined and friendly. The personnel is very friendly and helpful and they are very effective and helpful. I would recommend this University to any prospective students.

    A very fun and enjoyable family outing - the quality of the strawberries are top class and its very affordable. Bonus is that you can have a picnic here as well.

    From the outside the church and its architecture is already impressive, but it is the inside with its windows and wood work and furniture that round off the picture. And the church is still used every Sunday.

    We booked the 'soccer field' venue for a birthday braai and had a great day. It's so peaceful and we had the area all to ourselves. It was extremely hot on the day but there was great shade and the big fig tree is amazing so we were able to stay nice and cool. We were also provided with ample chairs and tables to use. Will definitely book again in future for a big braai with friends and family

    This lovely old church is in the centre of town, and gives the visitor a flavor of times gone by. The property is quite pretty, and the view up to the surrounding mountains is photo worthy!

    We visited Huckleberry for the day; we phoned in advance to book a spot. The restrooms are clean, the staff very friendly, and there are sufficient space and activities to keep the little ones busy.

    Great photo ops at this Church, there is the Church itself and a stand of bells too which make for great photos. The Church is white, as are the bell stands. I read that this place is from the 19th Century and is an early example of the Christian religion in this small town. There are two main Churches in this town, this is one of them, both are worth seeing by the way and are a few blocks from each other.

    This place is across from a field which has some history of its own, the Church is worth a quick visit if in Stellenbosch.

    I had my 50th Birthday Party in the private cellar at Goede Hoop last Friday evening and it was a truly wonderful experience. A four course dinner cooked by the great chefs from the Hot Skillet in Cape Town combined with a full wine pairing (each couple are allowed to choose a bottle from the exclusive collection) with the guidance of Johan - the owner's son - is really to be recommenced if you are a foodie and wine fan. The farm is as authentic as it gets - if you are looking for stainless steel, glass and fancy artworks this is not for you - but if you want a real experience and to scratch below the surface of a real working wine farm then this will not disappoint. Thanks again to Johan , Pieter and team for a wonderful evening.

    We found out about this place from friends who had visited before. Absolutely worth the stop! I didn't know much of anything about olive oils, but know I am so well-informed. It is run by Birgitta and Arend Hofmeyr. Birgitta spent nearly 2 hours with us teaching us about olive oils and doing tastings (she is an official taster). Very fascinating! The tasting take place on the back porch of their own home, and the view of the olive orchard in their backyard is beautiful. This was an incredible experience, and I would absolutely recommend!

    Moederkerk means Mother Church in Afrikaans and this is a Dutch Reformed church.

    This impressive building with a Neo Gothic Tower was designed by, Carl Otto Hager, from Dresden in Germany and was completely in 1863.

    This imposing bronze statue's full title is Old Mac Digging for Happiness. It was created by Madge and George Lang in 1965, as a life size copy of their original 1956 desk scuplture. The story goes that it has been moved several times, ending up in its present location in Stellenbosch in 2014 from its previous location in central Johannesburg. It's a fun statue, with an amusing and thoughtful information plaque near its base. Worth tracking down if you're in Stellenbosch.
