The University Town of Stellenbosch

is situated in the most beautiful corner of the world,
the Western Cape in South Africa.
It is South Africa's second oldest town and historically the best preserved.
Many of its beautifully renovated buildings originate from the 18th and 19th century.
Stellenbosch is situated 50 km North-East of Cape Town and surrounded by a world famous wine region.

Stellenbosch is an Afrikaans town which is quickly growing with immigrants coming from all parts of the world. Those of us who arrived from other countries love the town for its Afrikaans tradition and - at the same time - its generous international flair of a lively university town. In a region where the sun shines nearly throughout the year, people here love the outdoors.

There is a lot to see and to do:

Stalking cheetahStellenbosch was more beautiful than ever
when Dylan Lewis, internationally renowned sculptor from Stellenbosch, had turned the town into an outdoor sculpture gallery.
23 life-size sculptures were on display in and around the main areas of Stellenbosch from November 2008 until Mai 2010.
