This is definitely worth a visit. Quite a low cost and you’re escorted to the tower with the door locked behind you! That was a bit strange. Apart from that you have a really good view all over Swapokmund and you can really see the desert meeting the town and the sea. There’s also a good map so you can get your bearings too and a gift shop downstairs.

N$20 per person to climb up the tower for a great view of the city. Definitely worth it. ±90 steps to the top.

Fascinating architecture! Good gallery. And the best views in town. The tower has to be ascended - 360 degree views of the town is an experience. It is hard to believe that this gem and oasis of Swakopmund is surrounded by desert - it is easy to forget this when visiting the town. The view from the tower brings everything into sharp perspective.

When in Swakopmund, add the historic and charming Woermannhaus to you ' must-see' list ! Beautifully restored and housing a typical old fashioned library, explore the famous tower, which gives you the best views of the Atlantic Ocean and the older parts of Swakopmund and the oldest desert in the world, the Namib!

The house of the man who owned the German shipping line that served Namibia. Also upstairs there is an art gallery run by the local art society. Good to look at on a poor day

It was built 100 years ah-go as the house of Damara and Namaqua Trading Company. It became a dormitory, and now serves as a military museum.

There is not much to see in Swakaopmund itself. It is worth to spend a few minutes going to see the building.

The town of Swakopmund is all flat and the tower gives you the opporunity to get overall view, which is nice. Absolutely worth 20 namibian bucks.

This place has early German history of settlers arriving in Namibia. Provides you with a perspective of their lives then. If you have any German connection you'll find it useful. Even if you don't, the preserved building is worth to admire.

Worth paying the N€20 for the views across Swakopmund.

When I went there was a security guard who showed me to the room where you get the key from. It is around the courtyard but there were plenty of signs. Try and go later in the day (it is open until sunset) so you get the views when the sun is lower in the sky.
