“Great heritige attraction!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

A must see if you are visiting the Western Cape for the first time! This huge stone "finger" pointing upwards and the information supplied at the monument tells you the story of the Afrikaans language. Interesting setting on the Paarl Berg (Pearl Mountain) with it's distinctive round pearl shape!

“Beautiful structure”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

I have always wanted to visit the Taalmonument because of its beautiful lines and I was not disappointed. It is truly a magnificent structure! The museum was, however, a big disappointment and really not worth the while. Very disinterested "guide" at the desk. Although you have to pay for access, it is not expensive and a good place to have a picnic and look at the beautiful views from the top of the hill.

“Pay to see”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

When we got there and realised you had to pay to enter we didn't bother. Figured we could read about it on the internet. Good view from highway.

“Beautiful Monument, Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

I love the design of this Monument.
There is a museum located on site but its nothing spectacular.
I strongly suggest having a picnic on the lawns there.
