Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants & Businesses in Paarl, South Africa

 

Paarl is the third oldest town in South Africa and is located in the Cape Winelands region of the Western Cape.  Being the largest town within the Cape WinelandsPaarl has many activities and attractions to offer.  Only 60kms from the hub of the country, Cape Town, makes Paarl easily accessible to those travelling from other countries and regions.  Paarl is renowned for its scenic beauty mixed with its great viticulture and fruit growing heritage.  

 

It is a premier tourist attraction for those wishing to experience wine country.  Like most towns situated in the Cape WinelandsPaarl is part of an affluent community, with neat well-maintained and striking Cape Dutch houses, manicured gardens and oak-lined streets.  A charming example of a Cape Dutch manor can be seen on the well-known Nederburg wine estate.  Completed in 1800, this H-shaped homestead has a beautifully proportioned Cape Dutch gable and is fitted with yellow wood shutters, beams and doors.

 

Paarl’s national claim to fame is being the birthplace of Afrikaans as a written language.  A group of locals in 1876, ‘Die Genootskap van Regte Afrikaners’ (The Society of True Afrikaners) first printed the language here.  This historical event is memorialized in the Afrikaans Language Monument and Museum located on the slopes of Paarl Mountain.

 

A wondrous feature of Paarl is Paarl Rock - a massive granite rock formed by three outcrops which make up Paarl Mountain.  Situated in the Paarl Mountain Nature Reserve, Paarl Rock is made up of intrusive igneous rock and provides perfect hiking contours with views stretching out over the town - a firm favourite with nature lovers, hikers and birders.

 

With a slightly more Mediterranean climate, Paarl has pretty summer days with its rainy season occurring in the winter months.
