Kranskop / Hermannsburg
The Hermannsburg / Kranskop area is extremely picturesque with valleys, mountains, rivers and dramatic krantzes. Beautifully preserved meadows abound in wild flowers and a great variety of birds.
Hermannsburg was settled in 1854 by missionaries and colonists from northern Germany. The present day community is still centered around the original Mission House (now the museum), and the Luthern Church.
Kranskop, previously known as Hopetown, is a typical trading town full of African bustle; while Fort Cherry adds a dimension of historical interest.
