Historic church

Historic church, the coloured windows in front are wonderful. You can experience the German architecture of this church. You can sign a visitors book at the front entrance.

An elegant church, with central European style 'onion' dome, which you would not expect to see in the Namibian desert. A cool creamy yellow interior, with beautiful stained glass windows. Incidentally, the picture on this page is not that of the church.

Beautiful stone church heavily embedded in the German and Afrikaan history as relates to the European occupation of Namibia. The Church spokesperson glossed over the genocide policies of Germany in the early 1900's when local tribes were killed or pushed out into the Kalahari to die.

I had the luck to enjoy the hospitality from the pastor to stay at the flat of the church. The church ha beautiful windows sponsered by the Hansetown Bremen. The devotion is short serviceand typically lutheran. The people are warm harted and be welcomed nicely

We attended an organ concert recently. It was the first time I saw the inside of this beatiful German Church. It is a "must-see" stop when next you are in Swakopmund!
