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.

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.

Admission hours are very limited. Has a nice stained glass window in the back donated by the old emperor Wilhelm the 2nd. Worth a look Also a nice small memorial for the fallen WW1 and 2 soldiers.
