De Oude is located in the famous Church Street, which was struck by an earthquake in 1969, causing the buildings to collapse. After being rebuilt, the buildings along Church Street are now in the Cape Dutch style, and consist of 32 national monuments. De Oude Herberg is one of these.
The town provides a number of activities and places to see. There are museums, gift and antique shops, art galleries and various restaurants to suit all tastes. In the more immediate vicinity, there are also at least sixteen wine cellars and estates, with well-known brands such as Twee Jonge Gezellen, Saronsberg, Lemberg, Rijk’s and Waverley Hills.
