What are the major tourist attractions in Windhoek?
Independence Memorial Museum: A relatively recent addition to the number of landmarks in and around Windhoek, the museum depicts one of the most significant movements in Namibia's political time scale - the anti-colonial resistance movement. As the entrance road leads you towards the building, and this five-floored marvel of modern architecture comes in sight, you will likely appreciate it too.
The Heroes' Acre: Namibia's evolution from a German colony to a republic was not without its sacrifices, and the war memorial here gives credit where credit is due. Concentrations of both locals and tourists can be seen here on any day of the week. The memorial lies in the outskirts of the city, some 10 kilometres away.
Daan Viljoen Game Reserve: The presence of a wide variety of species keeps the interest alive, which is one reason why many wish to explore the reserve a second time. There is much activity during the summer season, to the point that individual trekkers can hike or track animals on their own. But you can always hire a guide of course.
Christ Church: Also known as the Church of Peace, the Christ Church has its foundations in the post-war era when it was built as a symbol of peace, goodwill, and cooperation of the general public. Its neo-Romanesque and Gothic revival style has much to do with the fact that the architect was Gottlieb Redecker, and parts of the substructures were brought from Germany.
