A walk down Dorp Street will take you to many historical buildings with Cape Dutch ort Victorian architecture. Apart from boutique shops and trendy coffee shops, there are many... More

This is the main historic walking street in Stellenbosch. It offers some food options (I recommend Stellenbosch Kitchen) as well as an excellent hardware store and a gas station with ATM. There's a good computer shop just off Dorp Street in Krige Street.

We lived on Dorp Street for the 6 nights we were here and really enjoyed being in such a historic and lovely old part of town. Oak trees line both sides of the street providing lots of shade from the hot sun although you have to watch your step as the tree roots have raised the paving all over the... More

In the middle, there are hotels, places to... More

A stroll up Dorp Street is a must when visiting Stellenbosch. The "village road" is lined with beautiful old oak trees and home to a number of excellent restaurants in heritage historical buildings, one or two legendary "drinking holes" and the quaint Oom Samie the winkel.

Dorp Street is lined with Oak trees and historical buildings. We took a walking tour which included loads of interesting facts on the Street and its architecture. There are lots of pubs and restaurants all around Stellenbosch with photos of the street through the ages. Several buildings including the Eendracht Hotel can easily be seen in these pictures.
