Woermannhaus Tours

Woermannhaus
Built in 1894 and declared a national monument in 1976, the historic Woermannhaus is one of Swakopmund’s most iconic buildings. Its traditional green and gold latticework and multi-story tower prove an easy-to-spot landmark for travelers to this seaside town. Seamen once used its distinguished spire to navigate the rough waters of the Atlantic en route to Namibia’s sandy shores. 

Woermannhaus has transformed throughout the years—from functional water tower to public school dormitory to a thriving headquarters for local businesses. But today, visitors can snap photos of the classic colonial architecture before wandering the stacks of what is now the Swakopmund Public Library. 

Practical Info

Woermannhaus is located on Bismarck Street not far from the entrance into town.

City Tour of Historical Swakopmund

City Tour of Historical Swakopmund

Swakopmund, known as the prime holiday resort of Namibia, was founded in August 1892 by the German Colonial Reich. For many years this town was the main harbour for the territory, being served by the mole and later the jetty. Both these structures still exist. Many historical buildings dating from that area are still being used and are rated as historical monuments. The distinct German Colonial character of Swakopmund has been well preserved and is undoubtedly a key attraction for tourists and entrepreneurs. The walking tour of Historical Swakopmund concentrates on the historical part of Swakopmund. Your guide will relate the history of Swakopmund and explain the origin of the various historical buildings in town. These include the Woermannhaus, a superb example of early architecture, Prinzessin-Rupprecht-Heim, a striking reminder of the way of life of the early years, and the Marine Memorial, a monument of superb detail.
