This is one of the best preserved of the many Moravian missions in the Cape, and is definitely the one you should visit if you are interested in this aspect of our history. It is a bit of a detour but it's worth it. The most interesting route is to travel from Hermanus or Gansbaai on the R43, turn off to Elim and then, after visiting the mission station, continue on to Bredasdorp and Agulhas. Alternately, if you are travelling down the N2 towards Cape Town, you could take the R319 (the Agulhas Road) and, after Bredasdorp, turn off to Elim and then on to Gansbaai and Hermanus.
