In the southwest of South Africa, only about 40 kilometres from the Cape of Good Hope, which gave its name to the country, lies Cape Town, the seat of the country's parliament and a popular tourist destination. The "Mother City", as Cape Town is also called, enchants its visitors above all with its diversity. Here, big city flair, the wonderful location directly on the Atlantic Ocean, interesting history and varied hinterland come together and form a perfect symbiosis. No matter whether it is climbing Table Mountain, browsing the many colourful markets of the city or a classic cultural city trip: Cape Town really has something to offer for everyone. For example, let us introduce you to the secrets of the city, show you the fascinating architecture and tell you interesting stories about the history and the inhabitants of Cape Town.
