Stellenbosch

The town, ideally situated in a magnificent mountain valley, boasts a mild Mediterranean climate and is the ideal destination from which to explore the Winelands and the many tourists attractions that the area has to offer.

Where top academics, international businessmen, wine and brandy experts, restaurateurs par excellence, conservationists, and people with a sense of history rub shoulders, excellence is bound to be the watchword. That is probably the term that best describes Stellenbosch, wit the unswerving pursuit of excellence evident in every sphere of endeavour.

Major Attractions

Rhenish Complex
According to Fransen and Cook in their book The Old Buildings of the Cape. This was one of the most excellent restoration projects ever undertaken in South Africa. The group of buildings reflect the architectural history of Stellenbosch - Cape Dutch (the old Rhenish parsonage gable dated 1815 although parts of the house are older). This building now houses the toy and miniature museum. The mixture of Cape Dutch and English style and the typical English double -story are also proof of this project. The complex is completed by the simple Cape houses in Market Street.
Moederkerk
After the fire of 1710 had destroyed the first church, the congregation, having little funds, were only able to commence work on a new church in 1717 on this property which lay on the outskirts of the town. A lack of funds set back building operations for several years. In 1722, Reverend Henricus Beck and his Council started a lottery, in an effort to raise funds, which failed dismally. Nevertheles the simple church was consecrated in 1723. In 1814, the church was enlarged and underwent further alterations as it has again become too small. The church as it stands today was built by the German masterarchitect Carl Otto Hager in the neo-Gothic style in 1863. The ringwall, build in 1734/45 incorporates family tombs. The tombstone of H.L. Bletterman can be seen amongst other in the South East corner of the graveyard.
Theological College
On oth or 7th November 1679 Simon van der Stel pitched his tents on the site, then an island in the Eerste River. He decided to establish a town here and named it Stel-en-Bosch. Six years later work commenced on on the Drostdy which was completed in 1687. The building was twice destroyed, in the fires of 1710 and 1762 and rebuilt each time. The Theological College of the Dutch Reformed Church was established in 1859 in the Drosdty with two professors and four students. The present building was erected on the foundation and cellar of the old Drostyd in 1905.
University of Stellenbosch
Stellenbosch University, previously known as Victoria Collage, became a university in 1918. IN 2000 there were approximately 19 000 students and about 800 lecturers. The 12 faculties are: Arts, Science, Education, Military Science, Forestry, Agricultural Sciences, Medicine, Dentistry, Theology, Economic and Management Sciences, Law, and Engineering.
The Stellenbosch Wine Route
The oldest in the Cape, is a must. Visit the estates, book a picnic basket, taste the wines &.. then take a few special bottles home with you when you go. You can even do the winelands on horseback, or book a wine tour and let someone else dot the driving. Most of the cellars offer cellar tours as well as lunches in their shaded gardens or restaurants together with a bottle of wine of your choice.

Fly-fishing happens at the neighbouring tow of Franschhoek and there is angling at the nearby Strand. Take to the skies - the Stellenbosch Flying Club is situated just outside Stellenbosch.

History and Culture

In the center of town is the Village Museum, which represents the major stylistic periods of the previous three centuries. Thatched Schreuderhuis is one of the very first of 12 simple dwellings that formed the pioneer settlement. Gabled Blettermanhuis reflects the elegant lifestyle on the eve of the French revolution in 1789. Grosvenor House is a more restrained neoclassical double-storey datingfrom around 1800. Berghuis shows the amazing clutter of a typical Victorian residence of later that century. If you're interested in things of a military nature, don't miss the museum in the VOC Kruithuis, a powder magazine built by the Dutch East India Company in 1777. The enchanting Toy and Miniature Museum in the old Rhenish Parsonage of 1815 is also well worth a visit.
