A walk through a former time
Feb 2020
Walk through Dorp Street and discover a part of Stellenbosch, which in parts sets you back to the old times. Historic buildings give a special impression. Seems you are back in the 19th or early 20th century. Very nice and worth to visit.

What a wonderful place
Mar 2020
We walked down here and had a fabulous time. It is utterly beautiful and lined with a plethora of wonderful shops and restaurants. Well worth a trip to Stellenbosch to have a look. The architecture is stunning.

Spare an hour to walk the Dorp Street area
Feb 2020 • Couples
We parked in Blom Road, opposite Rhenish Church. It is a short walk along Market Street to Dorp Street. There numerous interesting buildings to see as you wander along Dorp Street, or why not stop for coffee or lunch at one of the cafes. As you near the end of the street turn left up Drostry and head for the interesting Illage Museum. Continue along Plien Street back to the car.

Lovely Old Street

Dorp Street is one of the main thoroughfares in Stellenbosch and the one with the most interesting architecture. Some beautiful old buildings to visit and to view.

Historical Street
Jan 2020 • Business
This street in Stellenbosch has the most historical houses in one street in Stellenbosch. With the old canal next to it , it is a very interesting street. The trees in the street are all planted oak trees.

Lovely Stroll for Shops & Cafe
Jan 2020
It is such a quaint, unique town — imagine a university town in the middle of wine country. You get the mix of artisan; artsy & hip that the younger generation want; the unique pub cafe; the fancier restaurants of the visiting tourists; the Dutch colonial architecture; and the art shops; mixed with the chain stores like Le Creuset. Well managed street parking as well.
