All around the world Hermanus is known as the best land based whale watching destination in the world.Hundreds flock here for whale watching and, of course, the whale festival that takes place every year to celebrate the returning of the Southern Right Whale to the area. Situated between the ocean and the magnificent overberg mountains, Hermanus is the perfect place for rest and relaxation.
The town of Hermanus was founded in 1820 by Hermanus Pieters and was originally called Hermanuspietersfontein. The name was then later changed to Hermanus in 1902 by the Postmaster as it was too long. Over the years the small fishing village has become one of the most popular places around. Hermanus has a rail way station, but no trains or tracks. Plans were being made to build a railway extending from Botriver, when Sir William Hoy decided that there would be no trains as the steam would pollute the fresh air.
