This church is definitely one of the iconic sites in Luderitz. Its set high up on a hill really close to The Nest Hotel which is where we stayed. Unfortunately we did not go inside...I seem to remember that it was locked

Oh what a beautiful colourful visit. Doors open at sunset to catch the colours of the stained glass. A gorgeous visit.

Nice views, good photo opportunities. Stained glass is quite impressive. Look for the interesting imagery. No wheelchair access...

Amazing to find this church is over 100 years old. It had a very small congregation and needs every cent of donation. A commanding location on a windy hill with views over the town and the water. Worth a visit especially on a Sunday when the rest of Luderitz is like a ghost town. Always keep valuables to a minimum... More

This church is only open for 1 hour each day, but it has some excellent stained glass windows. There are also good views.

This is definitely an interesting place. It is a good viewpoint and the tiny little church is definitely a point to visit. Unfortunately it is often closed, so you need some luck to see it from inside.

The location of the church on the hilltop is great and gives it dominance over the town. However in trying to take a closer look access is very limited, which makes it much less interesting.

Visit this little church just before sunset when its open for visitors. The light streams through the stained glass windows and there are some interesting little facts and stories inside.
