Welcome to
Winkel Settlement

Bordered by the New Amsterdam Prison’s farm on the north, Vryheid Street on the south, Smythfield on the east and Penitential Walk on the West, Winkel is a historic settlement established in 1812. The word Winkel is Dutch meaning shop, so this area has been known for the artisans, blacksmiths and carpenters that lived in the community.
Timings: Dawn to dusk; Entry Fee: Free
