WINDHOEK CITY

With about 450 000 inhabitants, Namibia’s capital Windhoek is the biggest city in Namibia and, in a way, the only  “city” in the country.

The attractive town lies at an altitude of 1652 metres in a beautiful valley bordered by the Eros Mountains in the East and the Auas mountains to the South. Towards the west stretches the Khomas Highland to the Namib desert.

The City of Windhoek is – for an African town – very clean and a bit provincial. Over the last years, however, the appearance of the city has changed considerably through the addition of monumental buildings, mainly the new Independence museum  and the gigantic State House south of the city center, and acquired more of a cosmopolitan flair. But still one can find many buildings in the Wilhelmine (Victorian) style of the era of German colonialism, which contribute to the charm of Namibia’s capital and makes a sightseeing or Windhoek City Tour a must.
