Guide to Dorp Street

Dorp Street is one of the oldest and most beautiful streets in the town of Stellenbosch. Lined with giant old oak trees providing much needed shade in the summer, thatched roof white-washed buildings, Cape Dutch architecture, art galleries, restaurants, famous Oom Samie se Winkel and modern additions share space with the longest row of historical buildings in South Africa. A stroll from the bottom of Dorp street along this historic and beautiful road is not to be missed before heading to the left at the top of the street for a visit to the Moederkerk Church.
