Pretoria is a city with a legacy, a story that is often untold, a story hidden in the streets we pass without a second glance, spaces we often walk by without a second glance.
That is why this month – Tourism month – will close off with another popular 012Central City Walk – being held in conjunction with the Pretoria News.
This month’s walk embraces the theme of Pretori-Ja! and ties in with the Pretoria News campaign “This is My Pretoria”.
With the help of Pretoria architect Adriaan Louw, we will explore the heart of the city, passing by some iconic buildings and also see some new developments.
Come along and see the hidden gems and hear the history behind them.
Free walking tours have become popular in the city during the summer months. They start early to avoid the traffic and cover about 4km at a leisurely pace.
They end at 012Central where the monthly inner city market takes place.
Walkers should wear comfortable shoes, bring a camera or cellphone and some cash to buy a drink or gourmet brunch afterwards at one of the market stalls.
The free capital city walks are organised by 012Central, a City Property initiative. Through the establishment of the 012Central precinct, City Property aims to showcase Tshwane and rejuvenate the city centre.
After the walk, there will be entertainment at the Market @ Sheds, with food and entertainment for the afternoon.

TIme: 6.30am for 7am start.
