Located in the city's historic center, Christuskirche represents an example of Gothic Revival architecture, built between 1907 and 1910 and accented with Art Nouveau elements. The church boasts a spire made from quartz sandstone, while part of its roof and three bronze bells were sent from Germany. The stained glass windows, a gift from Emperor Wilhelm II, remain the building's major feature.

  • A church. Anything more than that. External architecture but internally simple and without any differential of a modern church.

  • A must-visit place in Windhoek. Very beautiful neogothic church. Beware of "fundrasers" that wonder around the church!  more »
  • Visit to the Church is a must in Windhoek. Thomas guarded the cars. You can see him in that he has a hard time behind. He's happy about every dollar and also something to eat.

  • Beautiful landmark....Can't help take a picture. Next time will stop and make time to admire better.
  • Each and every year I travel to the other side of the planet. As Austrian winter is cold and dark. In January 2014 I toured around at Windhoek. Enjoyed the living community and friendly people.
  • There is a "caretaker" that can give you a brief history lesson about the church
  • It's just an okay looking church. I did not think it a great deal as I've seen much more beautiful ones in Europe. But considering there's not much in Windhoek this stands out
  • A beutiful historic place
