If in Swakopmund do walk up to the church, it's lovely inside and a refuge from the glaring sun. A very helpful guard chatted to us outside and helped my friend down from the rocks.

A site well worth to visit by architecture lovers. It rumoured to be the second oldest building in Swakopmund. Made some aerial photos during late afternoon, flying around the church, when colours are just beautiful.

A beautiful old church in a fine architectural style in keeping with the rest of the town, and a fine example of elegant design. Well worth the visit.

Historic church, the coloured windows in front are wonderful. You can experience the German architecture of this church. You can sign a visitors book at the front entrance.

An elegant church, with central European style 'onion' dome, which you would not expect to see in the Namibian desert. A cool creamy yellow interior, with beautiful stained glass windows. Incidentally, the picture on this page is not that of the church.
