Windhoek, with its now over 500,000 inhabitants, is the largest city in Namibia. The pretty capital is located at an altitude of 1650 meters, in a basin of mountain ranges, lined by the Eros Mountains in the north and the Auas Mountains in the south. To the west, the Khomas Highlands stretch towards the Namib and the coast. The influence of the German language and culture can be seen in many areas due to the colonial past.
Particularly worth seeing are the “Ink Palace”, Namibia’s parliament building, the Christuskirche of the Lutheran community from 1896, the new bombastic Independence Museum right next to it and the “Alte Feste”, once the headquarters of the protection force and now the Namibian National Museum.
