The Reinet House, Graaff-Reinet

4.2
#1 of 6 in Museums in Graaff-Reinet
Step back into the colonial era during a visit to The Reinet House, set in a historic building. Completed in 1812, the building served as a Dutch Reformed Church parsonage, and displays a distinctly Cape Dutch architectural style in its gables and windows. Tour the interiors to see furniture and household possessions from the time period, mostly arranged in situ. The garden at the back centers around a cobblestone courtyard; look for the grapevine planted in 1870, now one of the largest such plants in the world.
