Christuskirche, Windhoek

3.7
Located in the city's historic center, Christuskirche represents an example of Gothic Revival architecture, built between 1907 and 1910 and accented with Art Nouveau elements. The church boasts a spire made from quartz sandstone, while part of its roof and three bronze bells were sent from Germany. The stained glass windows, a gift from Emperor Wilhelm II, remain the building's major feature. Christuskirche is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Windhoek Edition.

  • I read it was always closed but we found it open. Don't cry if it's closed: the interior is not special.  more »
  • But I wouldn't be sad if I'd missed it. It's like being in Germany, where they have soo many of these.  more »

  • Gorgeous! The gentleman that was at the church greeting guests was lovely and fluent in English, Afrikaans and German. Very courteous. The church is magnificent and very well cared for. I was sightseeing alone and felt very comfortable when arriving. The guys guarding the cars and selling there crafts were very helping in directing me to other tourist spots in walking distance.
  • Picture perfect. Perfect for photo shoots.
