At sunset, the dramatic silhouette of the Christuskirche makes an irresistible photographic backdrop.
Only a few hundred metres away again, as you climb the hill towards Klein Windhoek and the road to the airport, you will see the National Botanic Gardens on the left, open daily to the public via the National Botanic Research Institute at 8 Orban Street.

The main city cemetery, a dignified, shaded park, lies alongside the Hosea Kutako freeway, but the most interesting cemetery lies just a few hundred metres away.
This is the Old Location cemetery, where the black residents of Windhoek (from the so-called ‘old location’) were buried up to the 1950s, and where you will see a memorial to the victims of the 1959 uprising against attempts to evict the residents under the apartheid laws of the time.
In 1990 the National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) moved to the site above the garden Pavement displays of African drums and woodcarvings from the north contrast with elegant shops offering sophisticated Swakara garments and Namibian gemstones set in individually designed jewelry.
While some shops display clothing, silver and glassware imported from Europe, others stock casual and colorful garments from West Africa.
The area is the site of palaeontological discoveries, and of the city’s former hot springs, before desertification put paid to them.
