We were not expecting a lot from this monument as we approached but were very surprised at how good it is. The views are spectacular in all directions. The monument itself is interesting with water flowing at its base. Pleasant gardens with lots of shady spots to sit and enjoy the views. There is a cafe also. R40 entry fee.

Interesting monument that takes a lot of interpreting to share the artist's vision! Bit it's peaceful, with stunning views of the wine lands below and other mountains, including the giant Paarl rock. They have a nice collection of native plants too.

Worth the visit to discover more of the varied and interesting history of South Africa. The monument was built to help memorialize the Afrikaans language and how it came to be.

It is a steep drive up the hill which provides you with some nice views over the winelands. With the entrance ticket is a small brochure explaining the meaning of the various details you are encountering when visiting the building.

The monument is a bit tatty as are the surrounding gardens. R40 per head entrance fee should be refunded if you eat at the restaurant. Otherwise not worth going up there for a meal. Great views and friendly restaurant staff. Great breakfast as well.
