Venue:Government Avenue
Cape Town
South Africa
Doors Open:Closed to public

For those visitors who are interested in South Africa's recent history, this landmark building is of particular significance. This is the place where, in 1992, F.W. de Klerk announced the end of apartheid to the world. The De Tuynhuys building itself has an interesting background. Originally a guesthouse in the 17th century for housing important visitors to Cape Town, it has since been used as an official residence for governors and, later, State Presidents.
