Geography and History

Heidelberg is situated between the Langeberg Mountains and the Indian Ocean on the banks of the Duivenhoks River in the Western Cape province of South Africa. The beautiful Gothic Dutch Reformed Church forms the central focus of the town from where visitors can venture out on different routes.

Heidelberg is a town in Western Cape, South Africa, located near South Africa's south coast, on the N2 highway, 274 km east of Cape Town (about half way between Cape Town and Knysna). Heidelberg is just east to the Overberg region, and some consider it the beginning of the Garden Route.

The first erven were sold in the town in November 1855 and in 1862 the first town management board was inaugurated. Dairy farming, cattle, ostrich feathers, tobacco and corn were the products that put the community on its feet and the opening of the railway in 1903 provided that essential link with the outside world.
