it is one of the oldest buildings in Windhoek, a church with character, built in typical old German style. It is still used for functions such as weddings and very well maintained. It is one of the landmarks of Windhoek, if not Namibia.

The visit of this church shouldn't take you longer than 15 minutes, thirty if you're really interested.

This church is seen as a landmark in Windhoek and the grounds are neatly kept. Unfortunately you cannot go inside as it is still being used. However it does give photo opportunities

Great to see such history being maintained and looked after in the heart of Windhoek. Try and get some photos from the museum across the road!

There also a restaurant on the top floor of the museum, just opposite the church. The view from the restaurant is great.
