Shopping

Share

Both a university town and prime tourist destination, Stellenbosch is a shopper’s paradise, where you can enjoy a daily ‘shopping holiday’. 

Stroll along the oak-lined streets and lanes of the town, with its mountain backdrop, and browse through shops ranging from small local produce stores to large, modern malls.

Stellenbosch has seven main shopping centres, namely Die Boord Mall, Eikestad Mall, Simonswyk Centre, Stellenbosch Square, Stelmark Square and Stone Village. The Black Horse Centre offers arts & crafts, restaurants and accommodation.

There are fashion boutiques, gift shops, bric-a-brac, clockmakers, wine merchants, art galleries, antique stores, diamond dealers, and speciality shops, where one can browse for that special something. Take the time to stop off for a glass of chilled local wine or aromatic cup of coffee and mingle with the local folk at a sunny sidewalk café, bistro or pub.

Historic Dorp Street is a national monument and boasts shops, boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops and bistros, and general stores; the most renowned being Oom Samie se Winkel that dates back to 1904 and is a Stellenbosch institution. 

Don’t miss the local slow food market, fresh produce market or farm stalls dotted along the R44 between Stellenbosch and Somerset West.

Colouring Book

Foto’s kan nie altyd ’n sielvashou moment weergee nie, maar ’n potlood kan dit beslis doen. Hierdie boek is geteken met die hoop om spesiale oomblikke met ’n pen vir inkleur te deel.
 
I have delved deep in my memory bank to do the free-style drawings, and hope that you will add your doodles to the pages that evoke your memories. Stellenbosch is truly a place that inspires and innovates!
