We love Stellenbosch over the holiday period. It’s quieter but this is also the best time to explore with parking galore and a more relaxed feel. Perfect time to drink in the vibe, explore the shops and galleries, taking a breather at one of the many wine bars or restaurants with outside seating.
But just as a lot of us use this time to take a break and spend time away, so do some of the restaurant and business owners. Check out this timetable of opening days and conditional trading times for some shops and restaurants around the Stellenbosch CBD. These were correct at time of publishing but could change, so make sure you check before making the trip.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Tourism Visitor Information Centre for more recommendations and ideas about what to do and where to go.
Cheers to a memorable holiday period, stay safe and remember to give responsibly.
