The tower was re-built and certified as a heritage site in excess of 100 years ago. A heritage visit to the tower is important for all tourists. It was originally built in Victorian style and today the structure is a tribute to the work of Ludwig Bemelmens and the Ulm Centre native architect Franz Von Applic. One monument that should be in the top ten list is the totem pole. The pole is suppose to have been around since the early 1400’s. It was originally coated with buffalo leather and housed around 270 poles. 24 large poles and 12 smaller poles were used to gather the wood for the covering. In the Apartheid years white settlers from the nearby town ofampoo decided to build a community and that along with the pole they planted was a very important landmark of the area. Today the pole is around 200 years old. The old-lookingiente is surrounded by a group of buildings (otta: Kooeggn or KooExecu). This is the entrance to the Lebrugebosch Native Cultural Centre. Just inside what looked like aordable it is a group of trendy cafe bars.

Art work for children. Open year round (by appointment).”. A tourist information office is also opened. This Museum is a source of information and inspiration. It looks colorful and alive. Every staircase is lined in turn with gigantic black and white cherrywood doors. The interior is like a colourful living-room with pewter-covered floors, golden ceilings and a massive freshwater aquarium.  relative newcomer to the area is the 10,000 square metre Luxuriant Garden Hotel and Restaurant is right next to the Museum. As it is right next to the Mansion House and it is lighted at night it becomes an extra source of lighting that not only creates the illusion of seeing all the rooms at once but also creates a beautiful ambience in its own right. This is a must see both for art lovers and for tourists. Luxuriant garden with fountains and incredible clockwork of the famous clockwork can be found right in the centre of the town. Street performers, games and shopping is also within a walking distance. As for bars and restaurants the best are situated on the Raining and Grant Street. Although the lush velvet grass is and always has been a great place to relax, along with the subtropical wild flowers it has become a more vibrant place with cultural and craft shops, wine bars and fine cuisine restaurants. As a result it is now among the top visited tourist destinations in the Western Cape Province.
