Named after the Glaswegian farm, Germiston was a suburb developed soon after the Witwatersrand gold rush. It became such a popular place to live in that it was declared a small city in 1950. It provides plenty of career options as an industrial hub in the region, but also offers social settings popular for young adults. 

To live in Germiston gives a taste of history with the ‘old’ town home to buildings centuries old which stand in stark contrast to up-and-coming developments in a charming way.
