A nice church though we were not informed we can’t enter on sundays and we couldn’t enter! Beautiful building. Not enough chairs around to sit. Otherwise Sunday piano was nice to sit and listen to.

We were fortunate enough to attend a wedding in this beautiful and historic church. The setting was simply magical as the bride and groom stood at the pulpit under the Christ figure done in stained-glass and with the sun shining brightly through.

Whilst a must see in Windhoek, only a short time is required. One of the oldest building completed in 1910 it is a mix of styles and now stands on a roundabout so be careful if walking there. An attractive building, some nice stained glass...More

Namibia is definitely more about landscapes and ethnical-cultural experience, then about town attractions. This church, praised by the local German community is not really anything special, just a spot on the city map and well... maybe a good orientation point in case you get lost.

The church is a landmark that you should include in your tour if you decide on visiting Windhoek. It is on the top of a hill and is of unusual architecture.

The church is close to the centre of Windhoek, and is very simple in the design and architecture, both inside and outside. It is worth visiting if you are in the area, but otherwise probably not worth the detour .

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

You can visit the church free of charge, but a donation is appreciated.
