Paarl is the third oldest European settlement in South Africa with a culturally diverse community. In 1687, Governor Simon van der Stel granted the first farms to Dutch settlers on the banks of the Berg River.   Visitors to Paarl will still find many vineyards in and around the residential neighbourhoods, adding to the unique character of the town. Today the headquarters of the South African wine industry, the KWV, is situated in Paarl. They offer a variety of unique experiences to visitors.
