The museum - The museum is well worth a visit. A great collection of the old and a beautifully arranged history of the area.

The Beguiling Piketberg - It is easy to be dismissive of the small country villages one passes as one hurries on to more well known destinations. But you could be doing yourself a disservice, for often hidden away from view is a special place known to just those more fortunate and to those who stop and take the by-ways. Piketberg and the surrounding villages have much to offer the seasoned traveller perhaps even more so because Piketberg is so beguiling. At once a commercial centre for the farming and industrial community and, at another, an enchanting place with old fruit farms tucked away in mountains and valleys. The mountains above Piketberg hide the farming community of Piket-bo-Berg and it is here, particularly, where nature is close enough to touch. Popular with hikers and bikers and those who simply want to watch birds and look to for endemic fynbos. Eco-farm visits, wine and mead tasting, visits to the farmers’ market for fresh farm produce, mountain hikes, adventure biking, horse trails and rock paintings all to be explored in a place without the fears of city life. The village itself offers history walks and a number of places to while away time over a good meal and a glass of wine. The academic needs of the town are served by a well established and successful boarding school where academic achievement is supported by a keen interest in sport and artistic activities. In fact, the commercial faḉade of Piketberg hides a surprisingly active and talented artistic community and one would be remiss not to stop at the art galleries to view and enjoy the works of art on display. By way of a surprise, a drive through the streets of the old “township” and new subsidy housing development will reveal homes with beautiful gardens; a clear display of pride in a home ownership and of belonging to a broader caring community of people.

Spur Piketberg - The local hangout on a Friday night. What a pleasant surprise. Friendly staff, good food and great dining at Spur! Recommended if you have children.

Country life - The ultimate in country life, this town is surrounded by farms. Grab local produce from the farmers and come nose to nose with farm animals such as Jersey cows. A quiet escape for those who are willing to brave the outdoors at its most rural.
