Hahndorf is the most visited hills town and one of the earliest settlements founded by an industrious group of German Lutherans. Hahndorf, which is 28 km east of Adelaide is the oldest surviving German settlement in Australia and it has managed to retain its nineteenth century Germanic identity with many buildings restored for local use. You can buy modern and traditional handcrafted arts and crafts, and sample German breads and meats.

An unusual attraction is the Hahndorf Antique Clock Museum, the most unique collection of its kind in Australia and features the world's largest cuckoo clock. There is also a German Folk Museum, Model Train Land and a German-style restaurant in the Old Mill which was originally a flour mill built in the 1850s.
