Swakopmund is the main beach resort in the country and an example of German colonial architecture. It was founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South-West Africa.
Buildings in the city include the Wörmannhaus, built in 1906 with a prominent tower, is now a public library (where the photo's were taken).
Attractions in Swakopmund include a transport museum, the National Marine Aquarium, a crystal gallery and spectacular sand dunes near Langstrand south of the Swakop River.
We spend about a week here getting ready to move to the capital.
