There aren’t many towns that offer quite as much to the traveller on foot as Swakopmund. The historic town is located where the desert hugs the Atlantic Ocean, north of Walvis, and was the original settlement of German colonists. Swakopmund has a distinctly quirky style that managed to survive even with its growth in size. A walk along its roads reveals hidden gems that are easily overlooked otherwise. Make a trip of it and take our walking tour to get the most out of Swakopmund.

Swakopmund is best explored on foot. Your knowledgeable guide will take you to visit the most impressive historical buildings on an approximately 3-hour walking tour through Swakopmund, bundled with interesting material and stories of Swakopmund, the German settlement and charming town on the coast of the Atlantic.

Don’t expect to hear only facts and figures from the past, but instead hear colourful and intriguing stories from Namibia and Swakopmund and its quirky past to get an idea of history and life in the desert town. There remains enough time to answer questions and for finding out about everyday life in today's Namibia.

By request, the walk may be concluded on the Woermann tower. The brilliant look-out confirms that this charming African coastal town is indeed wedged between ocean and desert, instead of being located somewhere in Europe, although your freshly-gained historic insight might have believed you otherwise.
