The best things to do in Johannesburg

Looking for things to do in Johannesburg? The largest city in South Africa will not disappoint you. Its streets contain some of the most important symbols of recent South African history, and the numerous Johannesburg attractions that await you will show you just how much this country has changed.

Constitution Hill (a former jail for dissident politicians like Mandela), the emotive Apartheid Museum, and the Mandela Museum in Soweto are just a few examples of places to visit in Johannesburg that are essential for understanding the past and present of the city. But there's plenty of stuff to do in Johannesburg for the whole family. Kids will love Lion Park, the zoo, and the planetarium.

Do you love art and culture? Curious about what to do in Johannesburg that will suit your tastes? Johannesburg Art Gallery and Market Theatre (the center of South African theater) complex are some of the must-sees of the city. But there are many more things to see in Johannesburg. Discover why Johannesburg is known as the city of gold in Gold Reef City (a theme park that reproduces the lives of the ancient gold mine Ormonde) or visit the observatory Top of Africa (the tallest building in the entire continent, making it literally one of the top attractions in Johannesburg) and enjoy spectacular views of the city.
