The Swartberg Hotel’s Top 5 things to do in Prince Albert

Prince Albert may be a small town, but it’s packed with fun activities for everyone.

Here’s our list of 5 things we recommend you do when you stay with us:

1. The Prince Albert Ghost Walk

Prince Albert local and registered tour guide Ailsa Tudhope takes you on a twilight walk through
the town as darkness descends, introducing you to Prince Albert’s rich history, fascinating
characters, and ghosts! It’s a fun pre-dinner activity for the whole family that reveals the town’s
hidden treasures and hidden histories. The walk takes about an hour and half.

5. Walk the Koppie/ Koppiestap

A breathtaking and deliciously photogenic view of Prince Albert and the Karoo landscape is just
20 minutes away along the Gordon Koppie trail. Head to the top of Cromwell Street and soak in
the natural beauty of the area (no permit required).

The path starts at the top of Cromwell Street and ends in Klipstreet and can be done in reverse, starting at the corner of Klip and Bergsig Streets. 

Wear a hat, sturdy shoes or boots and carry some water.
