The OR Tambo International Airport (JNB) is a large and modern international airport about 20 miles east of downtown Johannesburg. He is approached directly from the German-speaking countries:
- Lufthansa from Frankfurt (on the Airbus A380)
- South African Airways from Frankfurt and Munich
- Swiss from Zurich

The car is unusable as a public transport for tourists, because the use of conventional trains would be much too dangerous. There’s only passenger trains like the Blue Train to Cape Town, the usual requirements of a tourist needs. The Gautrain could, however, offer a real alternative to its completion. This will operate between Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Special attractions include the Apartheid Museum, located next to the amusement park and casino. There are also in the neighboring city of Pretoria, the Boers of the monument and a great zoo. The Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg was the venue for the opening match and final match of the FIFA World Cup 2010.

Another traditional building in the city is located in the easy conversion Ellis Park Stadium . This stadium was first built in 1928 as a rugby stadium. In 1982 it was demolished and rebuilt.
