A Few Things to do in Vryheid:
The present police station is a National Monument and across the road is the Lucas Meijer Huis where the first president of the Republiek resided. It is now a museum and well worth a visit.
Vryheid is a town of over 30 churches of which the Methodist Church is the oldest completed church.
The Dutch Reformed Moderkerk in the centre of town was completed in 1894.
There are 3 dams ideal for fishing and boat cruises inVryheid.
We have a game reserve that you can take a drive through close to town.
We have 2 hot springs approximately 30 km from Vryheid to relax at for a day. The Mpofini Mountain, south east of town (5 km) is another area which deserves a visit. The Klipfontein Bird Sanctuary lies 2 km south west of town and is a success story to visit.
