The stained glasses are beautiful. This is a peaceful place for meditation or admiring the art. Mark that it's only open for one hour or two each evening during the week. Also, don't drive too fast up the hill - the road ends!

What a special little church! There is so much history around it. All the materials to build it was imported from Germany - even the sand! It overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and usually opens at 5pm, but the Buchters are flexible when a cruise ship...More

We went a bit late, but the guy opened up for us and let us have a look. Famous for its stained glass windows, we could understand why once inside.

Lovely little church set high up in luderitz. A remarkable atmosphere. The decor is spoilt by the large modern speakers and this impacts ones ability to take great photos. The hours that its open are also restricted to an hour a day so it's very...More

Since 1992 there haven not been many improvements in Luderitz, but the little church on the rock outcrop looks still the same after 25 years. When in the Goerke house, on the top floor you have a nice view of the church from the side.

Walking hill up to this church was nice activity before dinner. Nice, small church. Peaceful, dominant location. Open only when volunteer is there after his working day.

The building is pretty, and the stained glass is lovely, but overall there's not much to see. Good view of Luderitz from outside because it's at the top of the hill.
