The little, rustic town of Heidelberg, regarded as the western gateway to the Garden Route, lies midway between Riversdale and Swellendam on the N2, just 276 km from Cape Town.
It is set on the banks of the Duiwenhoks River, with the soaring Langeberg peaks forming a dramatic backdrop. The area is a nature lover's paradise and offers a peaceful and scenic atmosphere. Attractions include a golf course and bowling green along with a host of outdoor activities, including hiking and horse trails that are a home to all manner of bird and wildlife. Grootvadersbosch is a stone's throw away from Heidelberg and is the only natural stinkwood forest left in the world. For beach, whale watching and fishing aficionados, Witsand is only 20 minutes away from Heidelberg. The town offers award-winning schools with small classroom sizes, quality education and boarding facilities.
Heidelberg is best known for the warm friendliness of its people, and everywhere you are greeted with a smile and there is always time for a cup of tea, quick chat or a helping hand. Heidelbergers can well afford to be so happy with possibly the lowest crime rate in South Africa.
Properties are still affordable and Heidelberg offers a variety, from vacant stands to old Victorian homes and cottages, new developments, town houses and own title properties. There are also lockup-and-go cottages, ideal for stop-overs and weekend getaways.
