From sightseeing to hidden gems, find out what makes the city unique with the help of the locals who know it best.
Museum
“Situated in the heart of Johannesburg, Constitution Hill is a living museum that tells the story of South Africa’s transition from colonialism and apartheid to democracy, with all the pain, pathos and catharsis that such a journey entails. The site served as a prison and briefly as a military fort for 100 years, incarcerating men, women and even children within its walls. Its long-standing history of incarceration and abuse is today laid bare for all to see (which you can do with a personal guide). The sites of these museums – the Old Fort, the Women's Jail and Number Four – are juxtaposed against profound symbols of human rights, democracy and constitutionalism, making the site a place of remembrance and redemption.”

“Sharp looking joint with a great terrace for people-watching, set-up for fans of complex cocktails, craft beer, cool design and good music. The menu and vibe is upmarket and sophisticated making this a more grown-up, but not less diverse, alternative to Braamfontein's many great student-orientated bars.”
