Pniël Museum and Heritage Site

Cultural Tours

A tour through Pniël is a tour through history, although the visitor will no doubt be enchanted by the present-day natural beauty of the area. The village is situated in the bosom of Simonsberg Mountain that watches over a history of slavery. Today the narrow streets, beautiful oaks and old buildings are part of a heritage that never fails to captivate visitors to the village. Friendly people of the village allow the visitor to breathe the very air of this past mission station without fear.

The tour of about 1 (one) hour will start at the historic Congregational Church dating back to 1843. On the Werf area the story behind Monuments like the Slave Memorial erected in 1993 to commemorate the emancipation of slaves in 1838, the Slave Bell and the Ubuntu Monument will surely keep the interest of our visitor. We conclude our visit with a guided tour through the Pniël Museum – the museum that is much more than just a museum.

A tour of nearby Lanquedoc can also be arranged.

Booking, especially for groups, is essential.
