Observatory is located just 10 minutes from downtown (by train), yet it couldn’t be any more different. This residential area is built-up with small houses, most of them over century old. The back lanes are quiet, colourful and the people are very respectful and friendly.
Back in the Apartheid times, up until 1990s, Cape Town Observatory was one of the very few “grey” areas where everyone belonged, where everyone could live, there was no hate or discrimination.
Things are still the same today, everyone is welcome in Obs (as citizens refer to the place) but the area is mostly occupied by national and international students of the nearby University of Cape Town bringing the youthful vibe to the area. Obs is also the largest arts community in South Africa!
If you are keen to break into the Obs area and vibe, lets set up a viewing and go from there!
