Description:

Windhoek was founded in 1890 as a German Imperial outpost and grew, quietly and with some stylishness, into a graceful little metropolis of wide and unhurried thoroughfares, a culturally diverse citizenry and an architectural character in which the modern blends with the elegant German colonial style. Many of the older buildings are visually striking, as well as historic: the first white settlers erected a romantic fort named Alte Feste, today part of the State Museum, and a number of other imposing structures that confer a picturesquely European flavour to an otherwise African city. In the early 1980's Namibian artist Christine Marais created her much loved impressions of the architectural heritage of Windhoek, of which, due to a malfunctioning conservation management in Namibia, some have been lost to neglect or demolition.
