Johannesburg Fort (South Africa's Constitutional Court )
Repurposed as South Africa's Constitutional Court and as a resource center for the city of Johannesburg, the Johannesburg Fort is a national monument. Constructed in the 1890s to the specifications of Colonel A.H. Schiel, a German soldier serving the South African Republic, the fort was originally an armed garrison intended to keep the peace amongst Johannesburg's early mining population. After the Anglo-Boer War the Johannesburg Fort was converted into a penal institution, although it no longer functions in this capacity. Unfortunately, the fort is not open to the public but guided tours are occasionally conducted by The Parktown and Westcliff Heritage Trust.

The location of the site offers a good view of the city and the inner suburbs.
