In the heart of the region, Vredenburg offers all the necessary amenities to holiday makers and those wanting to shop or dine out.  Vredenburg was established around a spring of fresh drinking water. It was named Twisfontein (‘Quarrel Spring’) and later Prosesfontein (‘Lawsuit Spring’) because the rights to it caused so many disputes between two neighbouring farmers. Water is a scarce commodity on the West Coast, so water rights were highly coveted.
