Stopped here while in Windhoek with my parents (of German descent). Well kept & looked after. Good piece of German / Namibian heritage being looked after.

This is the most iconic building in Windhoek. It is a logistical marvel and a true tribute to the Germans settlers. Beautiful and still actively used for Sunday services and weddings. A must see for every traveller and tourist.

By European standards just a normal church at the center of the city. If you have an extra 10 or 15 minutes and you are passing by you can visit. Otherwise I do not think it will be worth to change your route.

One of the main attractions in the city is the famous Christuskirche. The German lutheran church that is featured in many postcards. It has a mixture of neo-gothic and art nouveau.

The church is overwhelming, is a very old and similar to those in Germany, this is a heritage of the colonialism of Namibia. The but, is that for three times that i tried to view the inside, the church was always closed.

Christuskirche is in a position overlooking the town. It is relatively small and is lacking any eyecatching features.

The church is a beautiful building with lovely stained glass windows. The inside is very quiet and peaceful. I was not asked for an entrance fee but there is a donation box at the entrance. There were a couple of gentlemen who were selling some crafts and there are those who were guarding cars. None seemed threatening. It is across... More

Lovely church located centrally but there's nothing much more to catch the eye when in Windhoek but Namibia is AWESOME
