Culture and Sights in Cape Town

South Africa’s Winelands

The Western Cape is famous for its excellent wines. Imbedded in picturesque scenery you can find hundreds of wine farms and vineyards of all sizes within 1 – 2 hours car drive from Cape Town. Even as close as 15 minutes away in the outskirts of Sunset Beach you can taste some of the best wines the Cape has to offer! As every vineyard offers wine tastings, we would recommend a day-trip to the Winelands including a visit of a wine farm, wine tasting and lunch. Alternatively you can book a guided bus tour with the advantage of having a driver.

Music in Cape Town

Numerous music events take place in the city of Cape Town – from classical music to international rock and pop music groups as well as South African bands. In summer, open air concerts like the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens concert are hosted every Sunday afternoon. The concert is very popular amongst locals and tourists alike. Bring a picnic basket and sit on the lawn while enjoying the concert.

Museums in Cape Town

Africa’s oldest museum, the South African Museum, is situated in Cape Town’s Company Garden. Other museums that are worth a visit are the Gold of Africa Museum, the Military Museum, the South African Gallery, the Bertram House, the Cape Medical Museum and the Maritime Museum. All in all, there are more than 30 museums in Cape Town that are open 7 days a week.


The famous Two Oceans Aquarium on the V&A Waterfront is one of the top tourist attractions in Cape Town and is ideally positioned to showcase the incredible diversity of marine life found in the two oceans. Over 3000 living sea animals, including sharks, fish, turtles and penguins can be seen in this spectacular underwater nature reserve.

Other Sights

Cape Town’s most popular attractions are Table Mountain and the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. The famous Victorian harbour with shops, restaurants, entertainment venues and museums has become South Africa’s most visited destination throughout the year.

Further sights are the Castle of Good Hope being South Africa’s oldest building and Robben Island. The various crafts e.g. wooden masks can also be regarded as part of Cape Town’s attractions as they belong to the overall picture of the city just like Table Mountain.

The different architectural styles like the Cape Dutch style, the old town houses, the popular Victorian houses with art-deco ornaments or the colourful buildings in the Bo-Kaap neighbourhood are well worth visiting.

Another exciting experience is a visit to the Artscape Opera or the Baxter Theatre where local and international productions are hosted regularly.
