Experience culture and history in Cape Town

© Hotel Colona CastleThe history of the Dutch conquest in the 17th century and colonisation by the British in the 19th century has left its mark on Cape Town. A mixture of traditions and cultures, colourful buildings from different eras and the particularly charming locals make Cape Town one of the hottest cities in the world where history is still alive today. Nelson Mandela was held in Robben Island Prison for 18 years and the locals still remember their national hero here today. The Castle of Good Hope, on the other hand, built by the Dutch, is probably the oldest building in South Africa designed by Europeans. In the District Six Museum, guests of the boutique hotels in Cape Town who are interested in history can gain an insight into the shameful time of apartheid, which was only abolished in 1994.

Cape Town Beaches

Several, beautiful beaches are waiting for the visitors in the city of Cape Town. The so-called Noordhoek Beach, which is located about an hour’s drive along Chapman’s Peak Drive along Cape Town, is a special insider tip. This wide bathing beach is almost always deserted and the water shimmers in wonderful shades of blue and turquoise. A really great view of Cape Town and the Table Mountain and Lion’s Head behind it can be enjoyed from the so-called Bloubergstrand. Directly in Cape Town the Big Bay, the Misty Cliffs and St Sebastian’s Bay invite you to surf and kite surf. Already before breakfast locals and visitors plunge into the bubbling waves here. © Hotel Ocean View House
