Top Rated Attractions in Johannesburg

St. Athanasios Greek Orthodox Church

An, as yet, unexplained phenomenon occurs in one of the windows in this stately church each day as the sun is setting. The image resembling the crucifixion of Christ appears in only one of the windows, although it is of the same hue, consistency and construction as all the others. To date, no chemical or physical explanation has been found, and the occurrence is widely accepted as a form of stigmata. The window is of hammered, amber glass and grants an amazingly clear picture of the scenes at Golgotha. For visits, phone and arrange details.

Nelson Mandela Square

Formerly known as Sandton Square, this hub of city life in Johannesburg was renamed Nelson Mandela Square in 2004 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the birth of South Africa's democracy. Also the home of the Nelson Mandela statue, which was unveiled when the square was renamed, the square serves not only as a tribute to the famed president's historic efforts to bring peace to the nation, but also a focal point where visitors and locals alike can contemplate the country's turbulent past. An Italian-style piazza full of shops, restaurants, and galleries, located near world-class hotels and the city's financial district, this is a must-see for any visitor to Johannesburg.

Gold Reef City

Built around the No. 14 shaft of Crown Mines, this city is an authentic reproduction of Johannesburg at the beginning of the 1900s. There are fully furnished miner's houses with original furniture and fittings, including pressed ceilings. The museum exhibits include antique clothing and children's toys, which take the visitor back 100 years to the city that was. A train encircles the park and many shops offer interesting curios. You can also visit the original gold mine in a lift that goes down to 220 meters below the surface. An on site casino is open 24 hours daily.

Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve

The Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve is the largest official nature reserve in Johannesburg, and it's well worth the short drive from the center of the city. The area contains diverse wildlife, including zebra and black wildebeest. There are also six hiking trails that range in difficulty.

Zoo Lake

Probably the most frequented open-space area in the suburbs of Johannesburg, Zoo Lake has a restaurant, paddle-boat facilities as well as waterfowl in abundance. The restaurant is housed within buildings at the heart of the property and a bowling club lies to the right. Concerts are often hosted here and an annual, ‘Jazz at the Park' concert is becoming a recognized event. ‘Artists under the Sun' is a regular affair providing artists an opportunity to showcase their works by the lakeside. Weekends are always hectic and everyone and their dog seems to find some amusement there. No entrance fee. Dogs on leashes only. Plenty of parking.

Carlton Centre

At 228 meters/728 feet tall, the Carlton Centre is the tallest building in Africa, making it one of Johannesburg's most popular landmarks. Built in the 1970's, the center has been an iconic part of the city's skyline ever since, with such additional features as the 50th floor, Top of Africa, observation deck, which offers panoramic views of the city, as well as an underground shopping mall, which connects the center to the neighboring Carlton Hotel (currently closed). Located in the heart of Johannesburg's Central Business District, this conveniently located landmark should be a part of any visitor's itinerary.
