The church stands in an elevated position close to the parliament building. Outside, it is immaculately maintained, reflecting it's importance in the history of Windhoek. The interior is very impressive, particularly the stained glass windows. Well worth a visit.

This is one of the major attraction of the city of Windhoek. Great Architecture, close to Parliament and museum. A must see place.

You can visit the church free of charge, but a donation is appreciated.
