Oak City, properly known as Stellenbosch, is something of a university town and is the second oldest city of South Africa, showcasing fine examples of Cape Dutch architecture. The area also serves as one of the world’s finest producers of wine. Only 50km from Cape Town, the city is easily accessible from the international gateway of Cape Town International Airport.
The fairly small size of Stellenbosch makes the entire city easy to explore on foot. Visitors here find museums, tours, and the Cape Dutch style of the buildings to be the highlights. The Powder House and Fick House give a nice peak into the history of the area. The Theological Seminary was the first university-level institution of the city and is a good start for those looking to explore the many schools Stellenbosch has. From touring the vineyards to a city tour that shows more than the oaks and vines, comfortable excursions await those who visit here.
Accommodation in the city can be found in the city center and along the highway. Most of the city’s attractions have some hotel, bed and breakfast, or resort located nearby, ensuring a comfortable and convenient stay.
