About Bosmans Crossing
Bosman’s Crossing is a picturesque blend of heritage and modern lifestyle with a trading village as the central theme. The trading village incorporates tourist shopping, community shopping and craft markets. To enhance visitor browsing, an arched village piazza, a river promenade and a cobbled arcade were added with an aesthetic emphasis on natural materials.
This provides an area of leisure, reflecting traditional activities of the Stellenbosch wine lands embraced by the ambience of a village square consisting of restaurants, coffee shops and wine bars, open square and arcade, riverfront boardwalk and bridge, access to the nature reserve, mini museums and a place to honour South Africa’s wine pioneers - a “third place” to meet people and make new friends.
Papegaaiberg is a stone's throw away, with the starting point of the 24-kilometre long Vineyard Hiking Trail, through a series of hills and ridges, through forest plantations, vineyards, olive groves and some of the remaining small remnants of the coastal Renosterveld.
