Castle and Garden Terrace at Hotel Heinitzburg

Hotel Heinitzburg A gorgeous hotel with panoramic views of the city and the Khomas Hochland Mountains

The spirit of Hotel Heinitzburg

A small, intimate hotel, the Heinitzburg incorporates the true character of Africa with European accents, boasting 16 airy, ensuite rooms, individually decorated and featuring excellent views of the pristine pool, the mountainous Khomas Hochland or the beautiful courtyard.

A full continental breakfast is served outdoors, in the garden café overlooking the city and the mountain range or in the grand Aschenborn Room in the old castle. Centrally located, the Heinitzburg is a short drive from the heart of town. The wine cellar boasts the largest private collection in Namibia. The superb Leo’s Restaurant more than complements the cellar, with a remarkable view of the Windhoek skyline and a deserved reputation for fine dining. Mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, golf and swimming are exciting adventures for energetic guests.

What we love about Hotel Heinitzburg

  • Indulge in a gourmet meal at one of Hotel Heinitzburg’s very famous restaurants, Leo’s at the Castle, which looks out onto the city skyline.
  • The fantastic wine cellar is a beautiful setting for intimate dinners.
  • The romantic history of the hotel, which was commissioned by Count von Schwerin for his fiancée, Margarethe von Heinitz, in 1914 — ask your concierge to let you in on the history of this dramatic destination.
