The city has a technological institute and a technical college. Welkom is served by a small airport and a part of the main railway between Cape Town and Johannesburg. The city is internationally known for the Grand Prix racing circuit located at its edge. The city is named after the farm Welkom where gold was first found.

The word welkom is Afrikaans for welcome. It is now the second largest city in the Free State.
