Interesting Things to Do in Windhoek - A Destination that has it all!

Windhoek is everything that a beautiful union of European and African cultures could be. Despite its inward location in Africa, the city is equipped shockingly well with modern amenities and caters to the preferences of all travellers. Here is a list of interesting things you could do in Windhoek!


Learn its History

Namibia having been a German colony, its vast history is, of course, a given. By visiting the many historically significant landmarks such as the Heroes Acre, the Independence Memorial Museum and even the Christuskirche Church you will not only be privileged to listen to impeccable stories about time and they are are also such stunning representations of their rich culture, architectural magnificence and timeless beauty.


Immerse yourself in Nature

When in Windhoek, you cannot help but indulge yourself in its natural bliss in all its glory. The Tintenpalast Gardens make for an exceptional picnic spot if in case you are visiting with your kids. If you take a specific interest in exotic plants and the like, the National Botanical Gardens would be a real thriller for you. The greenery that is nothing but an irrefutable treat to your tired eyes. Not to forget the Avis Dam Nature Reserve in very close proximity to the city is the perfect location for a sensational hike on a nature trail, or perhaps even birdwatching.


Some crafty time perhaps?

As you have probably figured out already, there is not a better way to get a feel of a place than through its indigenous roots and their materials. So, educate yourself (and most definitely spoil yourself some) with a visit to the Namibia Craft Centre and get yourself some terrific souvenirs representing the rich culture of Namibia. There is not an abundance of stunning handmade artefacts in here to keep your scouring for days and the best part is that it is within literally a stone’s throw away from accommodation options the likes of Avani Windhoek Hotel & Casino.


Eat, Love, Laugh

It is a given that no adventure is ever complete without the indulgence in some food-ventures of course. Whether you are a local on the hunt for a sumptuous meal or a curious traveller en route to their next Namibian adventure, you are sure to be befuddled with the many food options that the locale has to offer. Experience the rich food stories at its vivacious collections of restaurants and roadside eateries. After all, it is the food of a culture that appeals most to many travellers!


Have a whimsical night-out

Among all the fun things to do in Windhoek, enjoying its nightlife is one to look out for by all means. Very well equipped with multiple hip joints playing music soulful to energizing, drinks flowing and the overall pumped atmosphere, there is but a lot of memories to be made! If you would like to try your hand at some money-making sports, be not shy to check out one of many Windhoek’s joints.
