Yes, we know, sleeping in a castle doesn't exactly scream "romance" but Spier's luxury hotel lets you do exactly that. When Jan van Riebeeck arrived in 1652, Spier was little more than an outpost of the Dutch East India Company. Today, it's one of the oldest wineries in South Africa. When in Spier, make sure you take out some time from your Stellenbosch Tour and experience an eagle encounter at Spier Wine Farm, visit the Craft Maker to see some of the best traditional and modern artwork of the South African craftsman.
The museum at Stellenbosch makes for a great stopover on your way to or from Spier and offers insight into local history in its four-period houses- Schreuder House, Bletterman House, Grosvenor House, and O.M. Bergh House. You can also have a look at the toy museum and the archaic powder magazine, V.O.C. Kruithuis here!

There are hiking trails, picnic spots and swimming holes that you can enjoy with your family or friends. You can also stay overnight in one of the cottages nearby if you want to get away from the hustle-bustle of the city for a night.
Visit the Rupert Museum Complex to have a look at the unique classified art collection of Huberte and Anton Rupert, predominantly the tapestries, paintings and sculptures. Nestled on the Eersterivier riverbank within the picturesque oak trees and vineyards, this classical building represents not only the architectural backstory but also the natural elegance and wine culture of the Stellenbosch. Also, the museum showcases some of the notable creations of South African artists as well as that of Europe's leading sculptors.
A walking tour is best to witness the graciousness of the land closely. The town of Stellenbosch is small and walkable, so there are many ways to see it.
