Description

Never involved in any military action,the Old Fortress, known as Alte Feste in Windhoek, stands proudly on a wonderful hill overlooking the city; this colonial style old fortress with its menacing but in reality peaceful towers and its courtyard on the inner side,once accomodating troops, now welcomes visitors interested in knowing the history of the country they are crossing in their journey,taking back home not just natural beauties for the eye but an intense journey in the culture and history of this beautiful and much struggled country...

The complex was completed during the German colonization in 1890 and, declared years after, National Monument in the late 50's is home up to this day to an amazing collection of exhibits,from the origins of Namibia to the colonial period and independence,you'll go across rooms displaying rock-graffiti, furniture, ceramics, musical instruments, colonial style objects and many photos of the struggle for indepence of the country.It's a landmark not to miss during your journey here!

And near the fort another fantastic work of art awaits for you, the equestrian majestic monument,the Reiterdenkmal.
