The country’s capital is a bustling metropolis that is unexpectedly neat and orderly – though this is perhaps less surprising when one considers it was a German territory for many years.
This is the main port of call for most tourists and all travellers pass through the city at least once. Windhoek lies in a pretty valley, with buildings very much in the German architectural style.
The German presence can be strongly felt in the food, restaurants — and, of course, the beer.
