Welcome to the
Cape Winelands
District Municipality

To all our residents celebrating Eid

On behalf of the Cape Winelands District Municipality, I extend warm wishes for a day filled with peace, love and happiness.

We trust that this joyous occasion will serve as a reminder of the sacrifices you have made, the gratitude you have shown, and the good deeds you have performed.

May you enjoy a blessed day surrounded by your family and friends, cherishing the spirit of generosity and compassion.

Ald (Dr) Elna von Schlicht

Executive Mayor

Each of the municipal areas have their own features.

Langeberg has a drier climate than Drakenstein. Breede Valley is home to the internationally renowned Karoo Botanical Gardens. Stellenbosch boasts a long history in wine and academia. The exceptional Witzenberg is home to one of the highest zip lines in South Africa. Of course, the areas also share common features. They all offer wonderful options for accommodation to suit all pockets and needs.
