Historic Church. A good view of the sea and the city from outside the Church. A funny notice for the burglars.

This church is definitely one of the iconic sites in Luderitz. Its set high up on a hill really close to The Nest Hotel which is where we stayed. Unfortunately we did not go inside...I seem to remember that it was locked

Amazing to find this church is over 100 years old. It had a very small congregation and needs every cent of donation. A commanding location on a windy hill with views over the town and the water. Worth a visit especially on a Sunday when...More
