Although I managed to see the outside of the church, I would have loved to see the inside. The church looks impressive on the hill. Unfortunately the Church was locked when we arrived. very disappointing. I'm not completely sure why it was locked, maybe there...More

Very nice church, even better if you go back with sunset. Stained class windows a must to see. Take a pamphlet to read more of the history.

You must visit this church and see the stained glass windows. Especially when the sunshine pours through the coloured images. The Church is open at odd times, check before you walk up. (17:00 in the afternoon)

worth a visit but check opening times which were not as advertised. the main attraction is the stained glass; also the incongruous war memorial, commemorating those who went to Germany to fight against the allies.

This quaint church at the top of Kirch Street is an easy walk from anywhere in Luderitz. It is very photogenic and a well laid out church on the inside with stained glass windows.

The stained glasses are beautiful. This is a peaceful place for meditation or admiring the art. Mark that it's only open for one hour or two each evening during the week. Also, don't drive too fast up the hill - the road ends!

What a special little church! There is so much history around it. All the materials to build it was imported from Germany - even the sand! It overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and usually opens at 5pm, but the Buchters are flexible when a cruise ship...More
