Windhoek: modern and dynamic gateway to Namibia

In this pre-Covid video, we travel to Windhoek, the capital and largest city of Namibia, a country in southwest Africa, distinguished by the Namib Desert along its Atlantic Ocean coast.

Situated in the country’s central highlands, the dynamic metropolis of Windhoek serves as the hub for Namibia’s chief enterprise, administration, education and cultural bodies.

As visitors quickly discover, Windhoek is a blend of indigenous African influences, German colonial echoes and modern-day accents, interspersed with natural beauty. Neobaroque cathedral spires, as well as a few seemingly misplaced German castles, punctuate its skyline, complementing the steel-and-glass high-rises.

Offering travellers a great place to begin or break a journey through Namibia, Windhoek’s highlights include:

  • Christuskirche
  • Daan Viljoen Game Park
  • National Museum of Namibia
  • Zoo Park
  • Trans-Namib Transport Museum
  • Independence Memorial Museum
  • Heinitzburg Castle
  • Owela Museum
  • Tintenpalast
  • Kaiserliche Realschule
