This is an interesting place to view - albeit from the outside only. When we visited the doors were firmly shut. Nowhere did it indicate when we could enter. It's a very obvious landmark in the middle of town and impossible to miss. Definitely has lots of old world German colonial charm. Ironically, the gold coloured monstrosity of an independence...

"half a loaf is better than no bread" as the proverb says. Windhoek is a city without much possibilities to do any visiting, so in this condition you will take a look on this church. Anywhere else it will be forgotten and not mentioned in guidebooks ;)

We were very fortunate to be allowed in to this pretty couch isolated on its own roundabout. There was to be a service after we were there. We were allowed into a gallery to look down on the nave. Usually I believe it is not open for viewing but the outside is well worth a look if you have time... More

Windhoek is a small City with few attractions This church was built by the Germans in the beginning the sec 20 The only different thing is the sign with all German's name Died in the Namibian's war.

I've been here 10 years before, and at that time it didn't have tall buildings nearby so it looked bigger. But it's like the main monument to see at Namibia's capital, so still worth a visit. I'd recommend visitors to go there on Sunday, because most other days it always has bus tours parked around it. Don't forget it's a... More

Pretty much the most distinctive sight in Windhoek, a good photo op in a lovely part of the city centre. It towers over the rest of the city, lovely inside but it's real majesty is its exterior.

The Christuskirche is one of the mainattractions in Windhoek. It was built during the german period. I liked the mixture of architecture. Don´t miss it if you are here!

This church is tiny and beautiful. Next to parliament garden it is definitely a building you need to visit. From inside and outside it is a nice view. The church is in very good condition and still used with many active people.
