Image Welcomed by a timeless feeling when entering this town. Of course. This town is almost 300 years old. Genadendal ('Valley of Grace') was established in 1738 by missionary  George Schmidt, who was sent by the German Moravian Churc to convert the Khoi people. The focus of the town is the museum complex, a National Cultural Treasure which consist of 25 museums. The old buildings are dotted amongst ancient  oaks.

One of the oldest mission printing presses in South Africa could be found in the Old Print Shop. The Water Mill offers bread made from stone-ground flour and baked in open-air ovens. Be sure to taste the rooibos drink they serve at reception...

 Sit in the quiet of the grainery, visit the pottery or see how knives are mande by hand. Stroll in the gardens, picnic in the shade of the 200-year old pear tree or book a home cooked meal.

The Moravian Church is known for its talented choir and brass band performances. Visit during the Greyton Classis classical music festival.

If you are energetic you could tackle the Genadendal Hiking Trail a 25,3 km long circular route. Overnight facilities are available on the farm Die Hoek. A permit could be obtained from the Vrolijkheid Nature Conservation Station. (023) 625 1621.
