Burgerhuis Museum

The Burgerhuis is a fully restored 17th century home located in the heart of Stellenbosch. The building was designed with the characteristic Cape Dutch architecture found in many other historic buildings in the Western Cape.

The Burgerhuis was built in 1797 by a 3rd generation German immigrant named Antonie Fick. The handsomely built yellowwood tables, chairs and cabinet work are fine examples of the type of furnishings found in the home of the wealthier citizens of the Cape.

The home is decorated with the finest Chinese porcelain dating from the Ch'ien Lung period. Delft tobacco jars dating from the late 18th century hint of the elegant life-style enjoyed by the upper class.

The kitchen has also been fully restored with curious items and beautiful copper utensils, that would been used in the preparation of meals.
