Heidelberg developed as a typical rural Victorian town. Many buildings dating back to the period between 1890 and 1910 have been preserved. The historical buildings aside, the town has developed into a family-friendly town that boast with all the modern conveniences and top schools you would expect from a town geared towards growing families.
The "Jo'burg to Sea" mountain bike stage race starts in Heidelberg. There is every year a "Varkfees" festival with singers from all around South Africa performing at this festival. The "Outdoor X" show is held just outside Heidelberg on the Malonjeni Guest Farm.
