One of Windhoek s most prominent landmarks is the Christuskirche or Christ Church. The Lutheran Church was constructed in 1907 and opened in 1910 after the end of the Nama and Herero War. The building is perch slightly above the city in the heart of the historical part of town. The spire stands 24 metres and the building is constructed of mostly local quartz sandstone. The neo-Gothic and Art Nouveau style combined with stained glass windows donated by Wilhelm II give the Christuskirche its unique character. The clock from Germany and the marble altar from Italy are handsome details to take note of. The Christuskirche is located on a circle on Fidel Castro Street and Robert Mugabe Avenue.
