About Calitzdorp Dutch Reformed Church

The small town of Calitzdorp is perched conveniently along the R62, a popular tourist route that highlights the cultures, vistas and stunning wines for which South Africa is acclaimed. Calitzdorp has a long and interesting history and the Dutch Reformed Church is a testament to the generations that have lived in and formed the backbone of the Klein Karoo.

Building of the church began in 1855. Over the next few years, it was expanded in response to its ever-growing congregation. In 1910, the original building was demolished and the new church began construction, using stone brought via ox wagon and the wood from the original church. It was inaugurated in 1912. The organ was imported from Hamburg, Germany, and cost 2 400 pounds, complete with 1 495 pipes. This church has a spectacular steel ceiling, and can seat up to 2 000 people.

The Dutch Reformed Church of Calitzdorp was declared a National Monument in 1991 and is open to visitors from Monday to Friday on the vestry side. Visiting this attraction promises a peek into the history and heritage of a destination that is full of character. Its charm permeates the sandstone walls of this national monument and resonates with visitors from all over the world in a very special way.
