Such an unusual monument, well worth visiting, set in a stunning location with brilliant views towards Cape Town and back to the Drakenstein mountains
A great venue that is not being utilized to it's fill potential. We attended a show at the monument. Patrons should be warned that despite the warm Boland weather, it gets very cold up there. Lighting at night is very poor and needs to be addressed.

If you have always wondered why this is the youngest language in the world go and have a look . The story is quite fascinating and the architecture speaks for itself. A must if you are in this beautiful part of the world. Watch out for festivals up there , very entertaining and stunning vista

Stunning viewpoint, the actual monument interesting but perhaps not to everyone's taste. Certainly worth a visit.
