Built between 1666 and 1679 by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) as a maritime replenishment station, the Castle of Good Hope is the oldest surviving colonial building in South Africa.

From 1678 it was the centre of civilian, administrative and military life at the Cape, until the settlement grew and some functions and activities moved away from the Castle. Today the Castle is the seat of the military in the Cape, and houses the Castle Military Museum and Iziko Museums of Cape Town (William Fehr Collection).

Guided Tours are conducted from Monday to Saturday at 11h00, 12h00 and 14h00 (except on Sundays). 

The Key Ceremony is performed Weekdays at 10h00 and 12h00.
