Namibia’s Christuskirche

Me enjoying my moment at the Christuskirche 🇳🇦

Christuskirche also called Christ Church is a historic landmark in Windhoek, Namibia.It is a Lutheran church belonging to German-speaking Evangelical Lutheran Church in Namibia.

I wish I had the chance to see the inside

It was designed by architect Gottlieb Redecker in 1900 and shows us the German colonial influence in Namibia.

The wars between the German colony and the local Khoi Khoi put these plans on hold.The church was completed in 1910.

The structure was declared a national monument in 1974.Sunday morning services are still held in the church and are conducted in German.

  1. I like the color and the design of the church. There is also named Christchurch here which is one of New Zealand’s cities. You can see it on my older blog or my YT channel info on my site.
