we wanted to buy souvenirs and spend our last Namibian dollars before jetting home. This craft centre is set in an old former brewery and is full of locals selling basket ware, beading, carvings, jewellery and art. Ridiculously cheap by European standards and a great choice if items

I went to this Craft Centre regularly with visitors from Germany while working at the DHPS (1988-94). Whenever I am in Windhoek I go here again to buy my presents and have a nice chat and a good coffee. I love this craft centre in Windhoek und would highly recommend it, very friendly staff.

Lots of great crafts for sale here! I bought a few things to bring home. I also highly recommend walking around Windhoek for many more artisans selling their wares out on the streets. Street vendors will negotiate prices, artisans at the Craft Centre have fixed prices.

Prices are reasonable. If you intend to shop for folk art and crafts or souvenirs in... More

Food is served on a balcony or inside the craft centre. The food is excellent, imaginative, beautifully presented and with so many vegetarian and vegan choices. This was the only time in Namibia I found tofu. Juices and drinks were also different. Highly recommended for lunch or just a snack. We were too full to indulge in the gorgeous looking... More
