Windhoek ©
Located in the heart of the country, Namibia's capital city Windhoek receives a constant influx of tourists, in part because of its international airport.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Christuskirche and National Museum of Namibia. Step off the beaten path and head to NamibRand Nature Reserve and Fish River Canyon Nationalpark. Step out of Windhoek to go to Otjimbingwe and see Rhenish Mission Church, which is approximately 1h 50 min away. The adventure continues: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, examine the collection at Trans-Namib Railroad Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at St Mary's Catholic Cathedral, and stroll through Daan Viljoen Nature Reserve.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Windhoek using our trip planner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Windhoek is an approximately 17-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Windhoek.
