Christuskirche is in a position overlooking the town. It is relatively small and is lacking any eyecatching features.

The church is a beautiful building with lovely stained glass windows. The inside is very quiet and peaceful. I was not asked for an entrance fee but there is a donation box at the entrance. There were a couple of gentlemen who were selling some crafts and there are those who were guarding cars. None seemed threatening. It is across... More

It's a beautiful structure situated in City centre, Robert Mugabe Ave., Windhoek. Behind the structure lies the scenic Parliament gardens and it is also next to the Independence Memorial Museum. It's a sure sight to visit!

Just situated along Robert Mugabe Road, this unusual but absolutely unique church features architecture I have never seen before. It is one of the hallmarks of Windhoek's many landmarks and features a very simplistic but well-designed Romanesque interior. We passed by a wedding here, which was lovely, and just behind it lies the surreal Parliament Gardens; a fantastic place to... More

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...
