Paarl Tourism

Paarl enjoys a rural and tranquil setting in the heart of the Cape Winelands only a short distance from the city of Cape Town, and is therefore the ideal centralised location for an array of attractions, cultural activities, scenic drives, hiking trails and wine tasting opportunities…not to mention the finest food and wines! The Mediterranean climate has made it one of the top wine producing towns in the Western Cape, with world renowned wines, and Paarl is home to the Cape Winelands’ only Red Wine Route. Paarl is also one of the South Africa’s top producers of deciduous fruit, olives, cheese and chocolate.
Paarl is a very popular weekend or day trip for tourists as well as people living in Cape Town and surrounding towns because it offers authentic South African ‘Cape Dutch’ culture and hospitality.
