Tulbagh is nestled in its bowl of magnificent mountains and a serene, unspoiled valley. In itself a desirable destination for all seasons and many reasons, the historic town also provides an excellent base from which to explore the Cape Winelands and surrounding areas. Tulbagh welcomes spring with drifts of arum lilies and a myriad of fynbos flowers. In high summer the bounty of harvest fills its cornucopia to overflowing while autumn brings shades of russet and gold to the vineyards; in winter greenery and quiet mists blanket the surrounding countryside and the mountains are tipped with snow. It has been captured in the work of many artists who have found inspiration here due to its unique combination of sublime natural beauty and historical ambience.
It has the highest number of Cape Dutch, Victorian and Edwardian Architecture in any one street in South Africa, has notable museums plus art galleries and gift shops. Saronsburg Theatre on Main Street has an exciting calendar of weekly events. Tulbagh Tourism 023 2301375
